Chinese Art pained before Spring Festival on the River

Chinese antiques

For sale

I have a Chinese art, I want to approve its authenticity - it is not identify in any book of Chinese arts. In the painting you can see on a different pages hand writing in Chinese. It was painted in Qing Dynasty. It is my property, rescued during cultural revolution. There are signs and hand writing that prove its authenticity, plus it is very long painting - 6 m / too long to copy.


I would like to confirm its history and authenticity, plus value.

What does this mean?

Hello Sylwia,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The item presented appears to be an ink scroll painting
in the traditional Chinese style. The work appears to depict a variety of landscape and genre scene. Unfortunately, we are not able to fully translate the poem and sentiment inscribed on the panel. However, the work appears to date to the 18th or the 19th century based on the images provided. Regarding the authenticity of the item, a full in person and translation may need to occur, which takes quite a long time and research. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable scroll paintings dating to the 18th and 19th century. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.

Thank you very much, do you know maybe any special signs that paining should include to approve that this is not a copy and is from Qing dynasty ?

I have got few more evaluations and some Chinese artists says that it can be worth 1 000 000 USD or more as it is not a copy but older than Spring River Festival.

Hello Sylwia,
There are several scroll paintings depicting the same scene, by many artists and unidentified or anonymous artists. I do not believe the question is if it is a copy but rather who the artist was (that is were the value typically lies). Based on the images, it does appear the work dates to the Qing dynasty, which ranges from 1644 to 1911. Of course, in person examination may determine a more accurate age and other attributes.
