I am extremely grateful for your response.
Of course, this leads to new issues.
If the painting is as old as from the 1700s, should I have the painting up on the wall? It is now hanging in a room that is often dark and without direct sunlight, but what do you recommend?
The next question is whether there is any muesum or expert who could possibly look further at the painting? I Think that if it is a Soga Shohaku maybe it is of interest to know about it's existens. It was purchased from Sweden's leading auction company Bukowskis, and comes from a well-known collector's collection, but since it was a death estate that sold the painting in the middle of the summer, and the "summer-experts" at the auction firm might not have been experts on Japanese painting.
It is amazingly beautiful and perfect in the details. And of course I would still appreciate it, even if it would be a copy! :)
I send additional pictures, so you can decide for yourself. Thank You again for the answer! Best regards/MariaRR
