Subject:Silk Landscape Painting
Posted By: Canuck Tue, Dec 26, 2017 IP:

Just acquired this silk landscape painting. approx 9 x 19 inches.
Is anyone able to tell me anything about it and translate the text / seals ?
Artist, Age and where it was painted....
Thank You in advance

Reading of the leisure seal (Right)
用之所以   The reason why..
松風自度曲 我琴不須弾 
The wind in the pine-forest composes the music itself
I do not have to play on (my) cither
己巳秋月 Year of Serpent (...1929,1989) Autumn Month
榕城 At Rongcheng (Guangdong Prov.)
堉甫 Yu Fu Signature of artist (Probably courtesy name)
Reading of seal,
陳  Chen (Probably surname)

Under this name I could not find artist neither on
the net nor in the name-dictionaries.

With regards,
