450: Evening mist (Haruyo)

A courtesan, with front-tied obi and sumptuous purple kimono, strikes a dramatic pose - her camellia-patterned fan above her head as though to beckon the misty moon.

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.
