I bought a scroll painting. It looks very old painting. It is a very beautiful painting but I want to know the artist name and what it is written in there.


Kindly help me in identifying this.

Thanks Sachin

It must be 村上华岳 (Kagaku Murakami). He was a Japanese painter and illustrator who lived between 1888 to 1939.

  • Thanks for responding, that is really a great help. May I know what is the first red seal means and what is written in black ink. I really appreciate this.

  • @Sachin The 2 black character is literally 華岳. The first red seal has the same content: 2 characters but in ancient Chinese seal font.
