2000: Evening (Haruyo)

The wearer of this luxurious kimono - with a crane motif - has the obi (sash) tied at the front, a sign that she is a courtesan. Under thin moonlight filtering through the cherry blossoms, she has playfully wrapped the long sleeves around her hands.

Original title: Yoi

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.
