Seals, as a main aspect of appraising calligraphy and painting, must be paid attention to, because for Chinese calligraphy and painting, most of them are printed. If the seal on a work marked in the middle of Qing Dynasty is identical to the seal on a known authentic work, and there is no doubt about other aspects, it can be basically determined as authentic. Because in general, the copy of the seal will be somewhat different from the original seal, seal is very difficult to copy the same as the original seal. Now Jinan Calligraphy and Painting Evaluation Center will tell you how to identify the authenticity of the calligraphy and painting through the seal! Hope to help you all!
From the seal identification, there will be some differences between the seen seal and the authentic seal. For example, the thickness of the seal, the width and narrowness of the border, the damage, the clarity and blur of the impression, etc. This may be due to the following reasons: the first and last use of a seal will be different, the first use of the seal, the handwriting will be clearer, over time, the clarity of the seal will change. In addition, the quality, consistency, dry and wet of the mud will also change the seal after the cover. The width of the border is related to the stamping force and the underlying material. Sometimes the width varies. The clarity of the impression has something to do with the method of the person who uses the seal. Some people stamp hard, others stamp hard, others shake slightly. In addition, the quality of the underlying material, the cold and warm weather, the long-term unused impression and the commonly used impression will make the impression of the stamp different, and some people will also make the impression of the stamp different. Sprinkle some white powder or color powder on the imprint that has just been stamped to prevent contamination when painting and calligraphy works are extruded. Seals that are often wiped or scrubbed are also different from those that are not often scrubbed. The seal of a famous painter's calligraphy and painting should also have a certain artistic level. Especially in writing, there can be no mistakes. A famous painter and calligrapher can not often make mistakes in writing and using them.
Identifying seals also depends on the color of the mud. Although the color of an ancient painting seal may be bright, it will always have changes that have experienced many years and vicissitudes, and the color will become thick and calm.
Many modern painters and calligraphers often inherit the tradition insufficiently, have poor basic skills, always want to be innovative, only reconstruct pictures, not heavy ink, no foundation of calligraphy, and no research on seal engraving. It is extremely difficult to analyze their works through seals. Most of their seals are engraved by others and stamped on their own works. Whether the style is consistent or not varies from person to person.
Art works of each era have the style characteristics of each era, and so do seals. Seals on paintings and calligraphy must be consistent with the style of the times. If not, they must be fakes. For example, the seal of oracle-bone script could not appear in the painting and calligraphy works before the mid-Qing Dynasty.
