Song of the moon
© Haruyo

1900: Song of the moon (Haruyo)

A classic Haruyo pose, of a dancer with a ceremonial rope (Shimenawa). The kimono layers show a brilliant range of colour, while the background is subdued yet not plain, for there is cherry blossom, daisies, and a distant pagoda.

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.
