1053: Agemaki (Haruyo)

Agemaki is the courtesan in the classic kabuki play Sukeroku yukari no Edo zakura, a story of her suicide pact with her lover Sukeroku. Here Haruyo portrays her in gorgeous pose on her ornate multi-layered kimono.

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.
