Subject:12-13th Century Japanese Art identification
Posted By: Nikky Mon, Mar 11, 2019 IP:

Hi guys, hoping you can help me here!!
I've come across this piece and got no idea of authenticity.
This print is on silk or paper (cant work it out) measuring 10.5"W x 16.45"H and seems to be mounted onto wood with a discolored decorative patterned background. The print is covered in lacquer.The backing is a green velvet and has a sticker that says - 4-017 (then Japanese type) Forest In Winter 12-13 Century
I know absolutely nothing about this print. Not age, origin, material or value or if its a fake? Just that it came from a deceased estate in Australia somewhere and its ended up in my hands.Can anyone help?

I don't think the japanese were painting like this in the 13th century. The style, age and the inscription suggests it was inspired on chinese Yuan Dynasty (元 = yuan).

If I have to guess, its a more recent painting, especially for the water.

寒林圖 元人 - Hanlin-tu Yuanren - Picture of Cold Forest (Forest in Winter) -
(Anonymous) Painter of Yuan Dynasty

The painting is a reproduction from the collection of Taipei National Palace Museum, attributed to an anonymous painter from the Yuan Dynasty (12-13 century)
