Subject:Translation of script on silk painting
Posted By: Helen T Sat, Mar 16, 2024 IP:

I have 3 paintings on silk, one of which has some script and a stamp on. I have tried Google Translate on the script but no meaningful results. I believe it is Japanese but could be Chinese.
Could anyone help transplate the script and the red stamp mark for me?
These belonged to family who lived in India in the 1890s-1940s so I believe they are from that period, though they could be older or younger. They are unframed.
I'll post the 3rd picture on this post as I'd also like to know if they are linked ie do they tell a story and if so what is the correct order for display.
Thanks in anticipation
