What does this mean?

Hello Rhonda,

I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal,

Considering the photographs, overall pattern, painting and the colours, I concluded that this is a Bird Themed Painting on Paper by a South Korean Artists named "Nan Cheng" unfortunately he does not have many information about himself online. The writings are in Chinese, this was probably and exhibition piece from 1976-1985 period. In the writing his adress in Seoul, South Korea and his phone numbers were given. His scene depicts sparrows tweeting on a magnolia tree. It is a very charming scene with a small Japanese poem written on it. The artist has a very interesting approach as he uses Japanese to mark his pieces and to write the traditional poems. It also makesus think that this can be a interpretation of an old Japanese painting, the artist might have used Japanese for this reason. The piece seems in good condition without any faults and it has an intact frame with a floral textile decoration applied on it.

Entirely hand knotted.

Dimensions: 36 Inches by 5 Inches.

Condition: The piece seems in good condition without any faults.

Provenance: Purchased from an estate sale.
