Subject:Chinese scrill painting - please help
Posted By: Tamas Zsakai Sun, Oct 29, 2017 IP:

Dear Members,

I would need some help regarding a home assignment what we have at Dharma Gate College in Hungary.
We received a few pictures about a reproduction of a scroll painting. Our lesson is to examine the scroll and find its origin, author, and the era when it was made.
I was searching hours and hours about Chinese scroll paintings on the internet but I did not find any clue. Maybe some of you could help me with that?

Dear Tamás,

First, here is the correct reading of the title,
縛解珠圓 Fujie Zhuyua, Binding and untying round pearls
壬寅初夏 Year of Water-Tiger (1662)
蘇庵老人 Suan laoren, Old man of the perilla hut
方拱幹 書 Fang Gonggan shu (Painted by)
(Seal is illegible -out of focus, supposedly
Fan Gonggan)
Fan Gpnggan is one the art-names used by Fang
Gongqian 方拱乾 1591-1666 late Ming early Qing
period official, poet and painter.
His other art-name was Suan laoren 蘇庵老人.
During his life-span there were only two Water-Tiger years (1602 and 1662) - so the only possible year of dating is 1662.
I think the story on the scroll is about Mariti,the onetime devourer and then protector
of children.

With regards,és üdvözlettel,
