1500: Suiga (Haruyo)

A geisha dances a scene from the classic kabuki play of old Tokyo O-matsuri ("festival", referring to one of the three great Tokyo festivals). The title, Suiga is perhaps a fanciful name for the dancer, evoking grace and purity...

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.
