I have a few pieces of art my grandmother brought from China in the 1980s. She and my grandfather were part of a group to canoe the yellow river and fell in love with the amazing country and culture. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Always take a clear picture of the seal. They’re much more useful than the calligraphy for identifying artists.

The first one is 師任堂 which corresponds to the art name (號) of a female Korean artist in the 16th century. By identifying the corner, we can see that is a copy of this painting.enter image description here
