This is my first time posting, so any help would be greatly appreciated. I recently was given a sumi-e and would love to know what the writing means. To be honest, I am a complete amateur, so am not even sure if the writing is Kanji or Chinese. Further, I would love any information, or even subjective opinions, regarding the style, era, and quality (I will not be offended if it turns out the painting is simply a copy, pale imitation, or kitsch designed for tourists). As a unrelated final request, I am interested in purchasing, albeit on a pretty tight budget, other scroll paintings, and am wondering if anybody happens to know of some good galleries and/or antique stores in New York City. Images are attached below, and thanks for helping. Sorry for all of the questions.
