鄭板橋蘭作 - Orchid painted by Zheng Banqiao
板橋鄭燮 - Banqiao Zheng Xie
According to museum specialists most of Zheng Xie's
paintings in folk collections are fakes!
I know nowadays, seals cannot be used for identification, but the upper seal 板橋 (Banqiao)
is not included in the largest Chinese painters'
signatures and seals dictionary - 94 seals prints of Zheng - The lower 鄭燮 (Zheng Xie) is slightky different in details.
I also cannot understand the poor quality of mounting repair in case of such a famous artist.
