Plum Blossoms, n. d.
Ink on Paper
51 3/4 in. x 12 5/8 in. (131.45 cm x 32.07 cm)
Old number "L1780/28" written in pencil on the backing paper.
The painting is signed Zheng Tao Po in the lower right. It is nicely painted, but darkened and damaged. The calligraphic work is by different famous Suzhou figures. The calligraphy at the top looks good, but the three pieces on the right look like they were done by the same hand. The work is probably a fake due to the similarity of the calligraphy.
Professor Peter Sturman, University of California, Santa Barbara
