I have Chinese ink drawings that I bought in PA 15 years

Customer Question

I have Chinese ink drawings that I bought in PA 15 years ago. I was told the artist had an exhibit at the art museum i Philly. I don't remember the artists name. The writing on the drawings is in Chinese so I cannot read them. Is there any way to find out who the artist is.

Hello my name is Glenda,
Please note I am unable to do live phone conversations. I will not send a message to you asking for a phone call. If you get a message asking to do a phone call, this is not from me. It is an automated message from elsewhere.
You would need to take this to an appraiser who reads Chinese. There were many Chinese Artist who painted like this. I can try to help you find an appraiser in your area if you like?

Hey Glenda,Thanks for responding. The Customer Assistance Group advised me that I could ask you to release the question. Perhaps there is another expert with more experience in Asian Art. This is all part of the process of my not being charged for an answer that I didn't find satisfactory.Thank you.

Yea, no problem. Just to let you know there is no one here that can read Asian Art. We do not have a an appraiser who can read Chinese or Japanese, or any Asian Language, I personally know everyone that works. But, I will be happy to opt out of this and it will be on the board.

Thanks! If that is the case, I picked the wrong forum with Just Ask.
