1053: Dark cherry (Haruyo)

A courtesan shows off her opulent kimono, among equally luxuriant surroundings—falling cherry blossom, and a crescent moon.

Haruyo has added an inscription by her signature: "A smile for you..."

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.
