Subject:Chang Dai-chien reproductive print?
Posted By: ed Sat, Feb 01, 2020 IP:

Ni hao,

I have what appears to be a reproduction print (feels like modern paper, retaped 3 times, now to a cardboard frame) - noticed his famous 'color splash' mountains

Removed it from a glass frame in order to reveal the writing hidden by the cardboard frame

In the first row, the last five characters appear to be Chang Dai-Chien (Zhang Daqian) signature? Is absence of a seal (Chop) normal?

Also would appreciate translation of the text.

(I have another painting which appears ancient/authentic, with the customary two seals - from my grandfather in Hong Kong)

TaiwanWebMuseum blog has a good article with examples of both his seal and signatures

Thank you for your time

Otherwise, I can't answer the lack of seals either.

With regards,

Thank you.
Lack of seals might indicate forgery?

in any case, its a nice copy/print | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
