Reading of Inscriptions,
夏泉山荘 Summer Spring Montain Cottage
甲寅年仲夏上後 Year of Wood-Tiger (..1854,1914..) Late Midsummer
恆寛畫 PIcture of Heng Kuan "Pernament relaxation"
- Art-name of Artist
I could not find any clue to the above art-name neither in my dictionaries nor on the net.
Unfortunately, the seal underneath, probably with the name of painter is illegible. The other seals
(partly readable) are leisure or collectors` seals.
Inscription on the back side of mounting,
夏泉 Xia Quan (Summer Spring) are the beginning two characters of the title. It could be an occasional coincidence that Xia Quan （夏泉）1388-1470 is the name of a famous Ming Dynasty painter. It may not be a mere coincidence that not the full title is written on it. - Good eyecatcher.
The possibility of Xia Quan is is excluded.
