some better photos triggered alraedy a quick and helpful response by Mr.Nagy.
It seems highly improbable someone would attempt a 2 m high forgery of a confucian scholar without a real market value.
Into the new scroll was pasted the old honshi. there was no restauration at all.
One would have to take apart the scroll, clean the honshi and remove all old backing papers. Properly done the painting would be much cleaner and could be mounted in a new scroll again. There are a few worm holes but I would not call the condition very bad.
Best wishes, Peter
