Subject:Painting or Block Print on Silk
Posted By: Robert Sat, Aug 05, 2017 IP: 2601:152:4101:9ea2:8

I bought this painting or block print on silk from a local thrift store. While it is not technically accomplished, I was attracted by the colors and spontaneity (is it Xieyi style?). I would appreciate any information including translation of the inscriptions and seal marks. Thanks.
