Subject:Identify Chinese artist
Posted By: William Sat, Jun 30, 2018 IP:

Hello art lover people here!
Could anyone help, please?
I tried to search for a while ago now, but I still couldn’t find...
I got a painting as a gift, and I’d like to know the name of the artist on the painting, and an approximate age.
I’d really appreciate, if anyone could help.

The second line of the inscription at the first sight was not clear enough, I think the correct translation is,
"A Commemorative gift given to Mr. Sa Lunjing ( A foreign name transcripted into Chinese
-Saloshkin or Salushin etc.) for your achievements"
In Chinese these types of passages are not allways referring clearly to the sequence of events and persons (From whom or to whom)
