Can anyone identify this huge 21 foot long horizontal paper on silk scroll? (NOTE: see part 2 of this listing for remaining script!). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! David.

清明上河圖 - Along the River During the Qinming Festival
The original version of this scroll by Zhang Zeduan
張擇端 1085-1145 is kept in the Beijing Palace Museum. During the centuries over forty known copies and interpretations have been made from the oroiginal version which are scattered in museums all
over the world. Your one is a duplication from one of these copies.
Round seal under the title reads,
御蔵 - Stored in Imperial Collection
Cursive style inscription and seal,
御書 - Written by the Emperor (or in the presence of Emperor)
The other seals are collectors` seals.

With regards,

During a visit to SuZhou and HangZhou to research the river villages there, in one of the historic houses, I saw a diorama with animated figures representing part of this painting. Quite fascinating. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
