Subject:Japanese Scroll ID
Posted By: Lisa Maier Mon, Sep 18, 2017 IP:

Can anyone tell me anything about this scroll? I think it is Japanese and old.Looks like silk? It has a box that I think is covered in silk-at least cloth.Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

The scroll is Chinese.
Most likely is a mid 1950-es(or later) reprint (museum) edition of a very famous painting from the Ming dynasty. (Original in National Palace Museum)
Title of the scroll,
烟江遠眺圖  Distant view of a misty river
Signature and seal、
朱端    Zhu Duan (Chu Tuan)
(Ming dynasty court painter,(1502-1521)
Script on the edge,
絹本 烟江遠眺 中堂
Silk scroll, Distant view of a misty river with
a pavilion

With regards,

This is a contemporary Chinese copy of a painting by the Ming painter Zhu Duan called Gazing into the Distance on a Misty River. Original can be seen in the first row of images here: | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
