Subject:painting in a circle

Please read text, signature and seal.

Seeing the text following the border, would this originally have been painted to be a circle?
Or is the text added after cutting a makuri?

since I. Nagy has done his? usual masterful job translating, the missing piece of information is that the painter worked on a piece of silk that was already cut into a rough circle. the resulting image would have been mounted to a fan; damage from the central support (cf remains in the upper half of the image. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
