I am hoping someone can you help translate/identify the artist seal and secondary seal on this painting. Can you also translate the writing at the top as well please?

It was a gift from an investor to my prior real estate company and then given to me by my Director years later. enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

1st pic: 屈鈞之印, roughly “the seal of 屈 (surname) 鈞 (given name)

2nd pic: 龍騰虎躍, roughly “dragons rising and tigers leaping”

3rd pic: 馬到成功 [the common verse is 馬到功成, i’m not sure it’s a typo, or written deliberately] , roughly “The horse reaches, the work to succeed”, or “to instantly succeed” 🙀

丁丑秋月屈鈞畫, roughly “drawn by 屈鈞 in the autumn of 1997 / 1937 . . .”

generally, the picture would be called “八駿圖” (the picture of 8 fine horses); btw, the digit “8” sounds similar to “發” (prosperous); that, such picture is a quite good souvenir for business 😸

have fun :)

  • Thank you so much! Do you know if Qu Jun is a well known artist?
