Subject:Old painting of an eagle
Posted By: Christian Sheperd Sun, Aug 07, 2022 IP: 2a00:23c7:b2c:7e01:c

Hello

I have recently purchased a lovely old picture of a pied of prey fishing.
Despite hours and hours of research I’m unable to place a date or name to the work .
Please if anybody has any ideas I’d be extremely grateful.
Thanks

Christian

Title of painting,
静江 - Jingjiang - Quiet river
Leisure seal (with the artist`s favorite poem),
蘭空谷橆
芳影殘
雪風拂幽
夢沅湘閒
There are no shadows and smell of orchids in the empty valley(s)
The wind from the thawing snow blows away the dim dreams of the Yuan and Xing rivers*

*River names in Hunan province

Unidentifiable artist. Artists can only be identified from leisure seals in the rarest of cases.

With regards,
I.Nagy

Dear I.Nagy

Thank you so much, your explanation and translation is hugely appreciated, sending me on another journey down the rabbit hole of the understanding of poetry in Chinese art.

Assuming it is Chinese and not Japanese.

Again thank you.

Christian

Incredible poem. We are not alone in our melancholy towards the end of a long winter. I am very grateful that you are sharing your expertise!
