Subject:Qi Baishi Folio
Posted By: Shea Fri, Jul 31, 2020 IP:

Hello forum members,
I am hoping that someone can help me with this. I won a Qi Baishi folio of prints earlier this week. Luckily the auction house is within driving distance so no shipping fees (yay me!). As I was looking through the folio earlier, the letter shown in the pictures fell out. It identifies the folio as a book of water paintings. As I continued to look through the folio, it did appear that the book contained paintings, not prints. I tried to capture one where the layering of the paint is evident, or appears evident to me at least. Can anyone help me determine if the folio is prints or actual water colors as noted in the letter to Mr. Hall

Name of publisher; Ronbaozhai (Beijing)

With regards,

Thanks I.Nagy! I should have posted this earlier. I tried Google Translate but it didn't detect all the characters.
