Your artwork is a copy, likely a print, of a celebrated painting called "Evening Revelry" done by Tang Dynasty painter Gu Hongzhong (顧閎中 - 937–975) and recreated in the 12th century after the original was lost. The red stamp shown here reads from the top right down and across in seal script as "Zhang Lan Oil Painting" (Zhang Lan You Hua - 張蘭, 油畫). I suspect this is Zhang Lan, a well known Chinese art collector and businesswoman who runs a chain of restaurants in China. Perhaps you have a souvenir sold or handed out to patrons of one of her establishments. Here are some relevant links:
If I'm incorrect, I trust that one of our forum art experts will weigh in with a better opinion. However, I would suggest you re-post this query as a separate thread in the main forum.
