I am looking for help identifying the artist or any other information about this painting. It is one of a set of 2 that belonged to my great aunt. Thank you!

I read the signature,
王去走  Wang Quzou
Unfortunately the seal is too dim to read.
As soon as I find something I will let it you know.

With regards,

Subject:春光 chun guang in Chinese cursive
Posted By: Super Thu, Dec 07, 2017

The name of the artist consists of only two characters (without a family name) and the name
春光 chun guang
literally means Spring light (sound) or spring scenery (not sure that is the real name or not, very often on commercial works, the artists may not use their real names)

because they were written in 草書 cao shu (cursive) therefore they are not easily recognized since every single person can create their own style of cao shu. They can be ten times harder to translate than seal scripts.

You can see the cao shu of 春 here:春/p/1/
(also see picture)
and that of 光 here:光/p/1/
(also see picture)
The only reason I recognized them is because I once got confused by the cao shu of 春 and did some studies on it.

Hope this helps.
