enter image description hereenter image description hereIve had this painting/print for years, i inherited it from my Uncle. Ive always wanted to know what the red seal means and the translation of the text.

I would love to find out more about the artist

1 Answer 1


The text in the picture read from right to left (Chinese format), my answer below read from left to right in the English format

江邨烟云 - River village mist and cloud

戊寅 - The year (most likely 1938 or 1998)

秋 - Autumn

紹荋 - /Shào ér/ (name of the artist on the seal)

- grassy (also a grass plant's name)

英 looks like this enter image description here

荋 looks like this enter image description here

Seems like dROOOze is right and 英 is a much more common name (for male or female)

The author's name is 紹英 - /Shào yīng/
