I have a wonderful print that I inherited that has two seals on it. I am completely at a loss on how to find out what artist they are referring to.

enter image description here

  • 㥁(德)不在遠 (virtue is not far)

  • 陽春煙景 (a warm spring and misty/foggy scenery, meaning beautiful scenery)

I don't believe these are artist names.

  • i suspected the first character is 㑹 (without bottom component 日); instead of 德. so, the seal is "㑹心不在遠". – 水巷孑蠻 Apr 5 '19 at 13:04
  • @水巷孑蠻 「㑹」應該是「會」的異體吧。。。我個人沒看過無「曰」部的「會」字,這種結構也不符合字源(「會」的義符本爲「合」,而「合」的「口」部後變成「曰」)。 – dROOOze Apr 5 '19 at 13:12
  • that's why i say "suspected" :) – 水巷孑蠻 Apr 5 '19 at 13:22
  • @水巷孑蠻 do you think there's an artist name in these seals? – dROOOze Apr 5 '19 at 13:23
  • no lah, treat them as artist's "declaration" – 水巷孑蠻 Apr 5 '19 at 13:42
