Subject:Zhao Shao-Ang
Posted By: ryan Thu, Sep 21, 2017 IP: 99.99.169.229

Can anyone tell me anything about this painting?

It carries a dedication from Chao Shao An to my uncle's father, from 1959. The round seal seems consistent with seals I've seen on other Zhao Shao Ang paintings.

I think of it as a mantis on bamboo, though perhaps it's something else. Can anyone read the characters for me?

Nice!

His handwriting is not the easiest to read, you may benefit from someone familiar with his writing. I can pick out some individual characters but not enough to give you even the gist of the text.

The 己亥 date (8th month) is added to the bottom of the third line of text, and the dedication to your uncle's father (萬x菴?) is in the fourth line

Thanks!

The dedication I had mentioned is handwritten on the back in pencil in English. I didn't realize it was also part of the Chinese text. I appreciate your help.
