What does this mean?


Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry and for your patience.

Considering the photos, this item is:

A kakemono (掛物, "hanging thing"), more commonly referred to as a kakejiku (掛軸, "hung scroll"), is a Japanese hanging scroll used to display and exhibit paintings and calligraphy inscriptions and designs mounted usually with silk fabric edges on a flexible backing, so that it can be rolled for storage.

The motifs were often painted on silk. In this case, it is a landscape with a blossom pum (symbol of fortune and luck.

Many well-known motives were often copied and also provided with the original signature. That is why it is difficult even to assign the motifs or signature exactly but according to the details this is from circa 20th century. No artist could have been found under this seal.

$ 100 - 200*

Hello. Thank you for your appraisal of my Chinese painting. I know the painting is modern and cheap. And I have questions that you haven't answered.
1. Is this kakemono Japanese or Chinese?
2. What is the name of the artist? How does his name sound or spell in English?
Looking forward to your reply and thanks again.

1. Based on the images, a Kakemono Japanese, as I stated on my first paragraph.
2. The latinization of the names (as most of those signatures cannot be read as they are surnames or nicknames) I am afraid goes beyond my field of expertise.

Have a good day.
