Can someone help me reading this name?


Recommended Posts


I have here a vintage watercolor painting and I want to find out the aritsts name.

I am not 100%sure, if its chinese. Maybe someone can read it or have an idea. Black writing and red seal.

Thank you once more for your help!

It looks like markings meant to look like Chinese or Japanese, but created by someone with no knowledge of either language... Reminds me of this painting my grandma has hanging in her condo.

I wonder if it's even Chinese. It looks a lot like it simply says LE - JAI, with Chineesy letters in a Chineesy stamp. The paiting itself doesn't look Chinese in any way to me either, though I'm not especially knowledgable about Chinese art.

It's possible that the painter had those characters in mind. But then I still wonder what the painter intended them to mean, because 之当 is meaningless to me and  辶当 is not even an existing character.
