Subject:Chinese ink paint
Posted By: Myra Mon, Jan 14, 2019 IP:

Dear all,
I purchased this ink painting of a pekingese dog with calligraphy.
Would some of you be so kind to translate its meaning.. and possibly the name of the artist?
Your help - i.e. Nagy's - has been very useful before.
Best regards,

Thank you so much for taking the effort, I. Nagy; it's highly appreciated. Knowing the meaning of the calligraphy truly adds to the experience.
