These are depictions of pairs of Immortals painted in a style resembling early 20th century Republic but in off-key heavy colors that could indicate the scenes aren't original paintings. I can't read the grassy inscriptions, but perhaps I.Nagy can say what they and the seals are. Some years ago I posted some original Republic period plaques with immortals in pairs and generic seals of "made by". I revive them here for a look at the brighter period enamels and comments.

Best regards,

Bill H.

It's a modern interpretation/attribute to Wang Qi. Born 1884-1937. The calligraphy style, seal marks and general look are wrong for this important artist. In particular the facial features and clothing.
Wang Qi was a prominent artist and member of the eight friends of zushan.
His genuine works are very sought after and expensive. Hence most on the market are later reproductions.
