The signed signature, handwriting styles, and stamped seals of this work of art match those on the works of art by Zhang Daqian in 1940s.
The signed signature “Daqian Zhang Yuan” of the artist Zhang Daqian of this work of art is the same as that signed in the Seven Character calligraphy by Zhang Daqian dated 1935, that was dedicated to General Yang Hucheng with the provenance of the family of General Yang Hucheng, and auctioned off at the 2014 Spring Auction Lot. 2103 of Beijing Poly Auction Company on June 3rd 2014.
The paper of this work of art is gentle without the feeling of brightly and newly made white and should be used in 1940s.
The ink and color pigments of this work of art have the old marks since 1940s.
The artist changed the third sentence of the poem in the inscription from one to another. This means that the artist had both the creations of painting and poem writing. In practical authentication knowledge, this work of art must have been done by the artist “TRULY”. This work of art is a rare "Poem Amending Painting" in the world！
This work of art was outlined together with delicate drawings of thorns on lotus stems with ink, then painted red lotus flowers with cinnabar and outlined with gold mud. Most of all this work of art was painted by tall and standing upright lotus stems and various deep or light same-colored lotus leaves in different layouts with green mineral pigments, accompanying by some mud stains on lotus leaves. The whole work of art is archaistic, elegant and graceful. Up to the present only Zhang Daqian had this painting technique since 1940s in this world.
