Subject:Old Chinese painting, asking who is the painter?
Posted By: Monique Rosa Sat, Apr 13, 2019 IP: 2001:980:57ae:1:a59b

Hi i also have this Chinese painting. It looks really old if you see the silk border. Are these kind of paintings originated scrolls?
It is a painting on silk. Maybe someone can tell me who the painter might be.

Your painting is Japanese, however painted in Chinese style.
Inscriptions read,
行年六十九歳 - Sixty-nine years old
烏翁法橋 興也筆 - Uō (Karasu Okina) Hokkyō Kōya-hitsu -Painted by Uō Hokkyō (Crow Old Man the Bridge of Law*) Kōya
Lower seal,
興 - Kō
Painter's name: Kanō Kōya 狩野興也( -1671)
Second son of Kanō Kōi 狩野興以、painter of Mito
branch of the Tokugawa clan.
(* In the Edo period famous painters were alowed to use Buddhist titles like in this case "hokkyō")

With regards,
I.Nagy

Thank you very much for the research! I have a small collection of old paintings hanging on my wall and I really like to know who the painter has been.
Thank you very much again and have a wonderful day.
