What does this mean?

Hello Christine,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. I apologize for the delay in your appraisal and thank you for your patience. The item presented appears to be an ink and gouache painting on fabric, commonly known as a scroll painting. The image appears to be in the traditional Japanese landscape style. Unfortunately, I was unable to translate the inscription to the upper corner. However, these inscriptions are often poems relating to the image. The painting appears to date to the early 20th century or late 19th century. Further examination of the work in person may determine more accurate age. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of other comparable scroll paintings, dating to the late 19th / early 20th century in a similar size. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
