1518: Lily beauty (Haruyo)

Against a subdued background, Haruyo portrays a figure in a floral patterned kimono in rich colours. The model holds a single lily bloom, but there are more at her feet. These lilies are common in Japan, and are called yuri.

This puzzle can be combined with the Wisteria puzzle (code E18017) to make a 3000+ piece panel.

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.

* This puzzle has smaller pieces than the standard size.
