Subject:Scroll #5
Posted By: Norman Thu, Apr 28, 2022 IP: 2600:1700:d710:9750:

I bought this scroll in Paris (at the museum shop of either Guimet or Cernuschi- I can't remember) around 2005. The seals are fairly illegible- probably not a good sign. The entire scroll is paper, there is no silk backing. Otherwise, I know nothing about it. I remember asking the store employees about it, but they had no written documentation on it. It cost a couple of hundred euros- I figured the proceeds would help the museum if nothing else. Thanks in advance for any help in translation or identification.

山郭水村  - Mountains and village by the water
辛巳年陳書 - In the Year of Metal-Sbake (1881 or 1941) Painted by Chen
The right side of the upper seal reads,
陳 Chen (Surname of the artist), unfortunately the left side character with the given name is illegibly smudged
