I am trying to understand the seals and title for this painting. I have tried importing the image of the painting in Pleco and many other seal identification websites, but still no luck. I believe it could be a painted by a very famous Chinese artist and I need to verify its authenticity. Do you know what the signature says?

i think it's: 巫峡神女峰

壬午年

xx月

Can't tell which month it is.. maybe someone else can identify it.

  • it seems like 夏月 to me, 夏 is elongated like 峰. It can also be 夏日 which is a common term for Summer season – Tang Ho Dec 6 '19 at 9:12

There is no "title" of the painting as such - the theme of the painting can only be inferred from the text, which as @sylvia points out literally says:

巫峽神女峰壬午年丙X月

Painted at Shénnǚ peak of the Wū Gorge on the Year of Rénwǔ and month ofX.
