Thanks for your reply, it's from a cover of a book, here's a couple more images, signature photo also, but bad quality, if you can translate, would appreciate.

Best regards!

李唐 - Li Tang
囗碧經 - □bi-jing - □Jade Classics
(Unfortunateli I can't decipher the 1st character)
It is not the seal used by the artist.

The upper picture depicts Laozi (Lao-tse) leaving China for the West on a water buffalo.
Lower picture depicts 3 Taoist scholars with the sign of the Yang and Yi (Taoist symbol)

From the screen it is difficult to judge about the method and time of reproduction of the Li Tang picture(s). Probably they have belonged to a Taoist classical work "....jade Classics" as evidenced by the semi-readable seal. - I think a later 19c. edition -
At least according to my opinion.

With regards,

Thank you very much. The book can be unfold to depict various situations in one long single scene, starting with Lao Tzu. I post a couple more.
Thanks again for your time and help, I'll keep researching a bit more on it.

ps: last photo depicts someone bringing a ceremonial wine vessel.. nice! | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
