1000: Cherry (Haruyo)

A young girl, her kimono decorated with delicate pink origami cranes, shelters under her diaphanous umbrella - the wind gusts a shower of cherry blossom petals. Haruyo has completed the scene with Mt. Fuji in the distance.

Original title: Yumezakura, literally "dream cherry"

Detail

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.
