1000: Iris (Haruyo)

The figure standing amidst this luxuriant bed of irises wears a rich red kimono with the black hem that marks her as a daughter of the merchant class.

Haruyo has again added an inscription by her signature - "Treasuring you..."

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.
