1000: Sachi (Haruyo)

The title, Sachi, means "happiness" or "blessings". There is a simple, classical elegance to this portrait of a lady with two doves.

There's a bonus with this puzzle: on the back of the box appears the whole range of Haruyo puzzles as of around the year 2000 - unfortunately only a very few of these are still available.

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.
