Why most cursive forms of two Chinese characters, "不" and "正", have a different shape that violates the stroke order?
I'm trying to figure out who the artist is on a painting. I don't know if it's Chinese or Japanese (Characters identified: 新羅山人 秋岳)
Please, help translate the text and stamps on this painted silk screen to identify the artist and date?
Need translation for painting in regards to who the artist is and what it reads in Chinese calligraphy
