Subject:Silk Painting
Posted By: Markus Mon, Sep 10, 2018 IP:

A friend of me recommended that forum to me.
Unfortunately have no experience with Asian art. Recently I found this silk painting for little money.
Now I would like to know more about it.
Is it from Japan or China. What does the signature say.
Many thanks for any answer.
Markus :-)

Hi I.Nagy
Many many thanks to you! That's great.
I think it's probably from a later artist in the 20th century. If you search google you can find several similar paintings.
It seems not to be a lot worth but I like it anyway.
Many thanks again, best regards, Markus, Switzerland. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
