Bought this at auction for a reasonable price. Wondered if anyone on this forum might recognize the artist seal or can translate the script. Any other info would be greatly appreciated.

Artist's name seems to be Li Gongfu 李公甫 (thanks for the closeup of the seal). The picture is dated autumn 1959. I don't see any obvious references to this artist online though

Thanks for the info, Rat. I am by no means a connoisseur of Asian art, but my interest was taken with this scroll painting and to have some info on it has made my day! Thanks again.

I. Nagy - thank you very much for your expertise and kind assistance. I am grateful.

I already liked the painting but now I have the inscription I am even fonder of it.

Thanks again. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
