How wonderful! thank you so much I. Nagy for translating this for me.
"Yang" is the artist's name I presume?

With regards
Michael

Yes, Yang is the surname of artist, unfortunately I can't read the seal script form of the given name.

With regards,

Dear I Nagy,

I suggest the missing character of the name could be Wei 衛. I found one example (granted very unusual) where the 方 element had been included in the middle of the character.

Respectfully

Mikeoz

Dear Mikeoz,
Thank you for your help. I could be 衛 indeed.
However, I can't find painter named 楊衛 Yang Wei, probably from late Qing.
Cheers,
I.Nagy
