1000: Yellow splendour (Haruyo)

The original title, Ouka, combines the charcter for "yellow" with that for "lustrous", in a way it is difficult to capture in English! The subject wears a kimono richly patterned in reds and purple, and stands on a background of fanciful flowers, in a setting of the richest deepest yellow...

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.
