Subject:Confirmation of Artist and Year
Posted By: Ian Dubin Mon, Sep 25, 2017 IP: 42.2.219.172

Hi there

I have acquired a trove of varied Asian Art including jade, ceramic paintings, pottery, jewellery and Fantasy coins, much of it Republican Era, well provenanced as it came from the estate of a collector who operated in Hong Kong mainly from the 1950s through the early 1990s.

I attach photos of a quadriptych ceramic painting which I have identified as the work of Master Wang
Dafan (1881 - 1961), one of the 8 Friends of Zhushan.

I've included one picture of a full set, plus two examples of the inscriptions of individual panels, one from a different quadriptych set.

Grateful for assistance with translation, including in particular any dates.

Thanks for your assistance.

Ian Dubin

Mr Nagy

Thank you very much.

Do you have any advice on auction houses who would specialise in this kind of thing?

I have 8 sets of Wang Dafan quadryptychs and may be4 able to source more. Not modern copies, test as old porcelain using UV and provenanced to the estate of a collector who operated in Hong Kong from the 1950s to the 1990s

I attach pictures of the 100 Children piece.

Best regards and thanks again

Ian Dubin
