1000: Peony (Haruyo)

Holding a peony in her hand, the young figure in this picture (the hairstyle shows her to be a princess) is surrounded by a veritable forest of blooms. Haruyo stresses the innocence of her pose with the subtitle "Shyly..." (by the signature).

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.
