佚名 – 仙鹤仕女

Unknown Artist

And the top part reads: Anonymous, Crane Women. 

I found this on an auction site here though *MISFORTUNE* I don’t happen to be Mandarin literate and Google translate function only gets you so far. Maybe some of you will get more out of the link than I did.  

The only thing I can gleen is it is on paper not silk so it is post Song. But the translation implies silk despite it looking paper-y. However, on the auction site there is a lot more historical damage on it then what is shown here-like that massive crease mark across -Let’s just call her Ms. Peony- Ms. Peony’s head. Thus I can only say: Maybe she’s born with it … Maybe it’s photoshop. Cause I mean shoot that’s a forehead line that I don’t even think Botox could lay out flat. I guess that’s why IMO guys if you’re into collecting guys go do it IRL cause seeing is believing. Or if you’re balling: send someone for you who knows their Owls from their Fowls.

And I totally think the two figures are all like : GO HOME CRANE YOU ARE DRUNK. Also how on trend is that back pack?! #WANT Also how modern does that be-backpacked figure looks. Even though not, my knee-jerk reaction is she looks quite 30′s.

That backpack though. 

the coolest painting I have ever seen
