I am having some trouble finding some old Chinese or Japanese landscape paintings with *a good amount of inscriptions* on them with few people or none (and the people are small in comparison with the landscape). Can anyone throw out some artists’ names?
Here is an example:
If you want more detail, I am looking for preferably winter landscapes and for it to be popular enough that my friend could buy a poster of it. I think he would prefer it to have a good amount of color in it like Ando Hiroshige’s pieces. But again, that’s a preference. Thanks!
also having trouble deciding what terms to include in google/yahoo searches so that I can find writing on the paintings. I can only think of "poem" or "inscription" and "calligraphy". Any suggestions on that would also be helpful.
Some Hiroshige winter landscapes have inscriptions. See http://www.art.com/asp/sp-asp/_/PD–12445158/SP–A/IGID–1421882/Evening_Bell_at_Mii_Temple.htm?sOrig=CAT&sOrigID=24786&ui=EE879EB10FE141638635D21E31A0C085
Here is a beautiful winter one: Evening Bell at Mii Temple
