Could anyone help me identify this artist? It is on a silk ink painting. Thank you. My Chinese is not that good but usually, I get by with dictionaries. However, seal script is new for me. I found some good tips and resources here but still struggling. Top to bottom and right to left as I understand?
1the left bottom one is a distorted character “印”, in seal script. the left component of the right bottom character looks like heart “心” 😺– 水巷孑蠻Sep 10, 2022 at 14:51
Thank you. I will keep on exploring.– Inga MSep 20, 2022 at 13:18

it seems more like the character “丘” humanum.arts.cuhk.edu.hk/Lexis/lexi-mf/search.php?word=丘 , than the character “立” humanum.arts.cuhk.edu.hk/Lexis/lexi-mf/search.php?word=立 ; imo 😸– 水巷孑蠻Nov 1, 2022 at 0:30
@水巷孑蠻, 昨天我询问了中国的篆刻论坛的网友, 他们的意思是, 从字法上看确实是丘, 但谷歌上查不到"文丘德"的任何信息, 而文立德是一位画家, 所以我的推测是, "It is on a silk ink painting", 可能由于是丝绸材质的原因导致印章有缺损. Nov 1, 2022 at 1:11
yes, maybe 😺 it’s an opinion 😹 btw, i’ve impression that the seal maker has incorrect knowledge of seal script 😾– 水巷孑蠻Nov 1, 2022 at 1:23
