2542: Chrysanthemum banquet (Haruyo)

A courtesan waits wistfully, surrounded by the chrysanthemums of the title, with a very lushly painted screen as background. With her ornate kimono patterned with cherry blossoms there are no tedious areas in this puzzle...

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.
