2016: Dance of the butterflies (Haruyo)

In this simple yet elegant design, the young figure (a geisha?) surrounded by fluttering butterflies seems to muse "Should I be dancing too...?"

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.
