Need help with Japanese artist seal signature or is it Chinese? - 08-17-2018, 02:50 PM


Thank you for taking the time.

I need help with this seal mark which I believe to be Japanese. Can somebody read the red seal mark to name it to a artist? Its a watercolor of a fish on old laid paper. Please see link below for a picture.

Any info is welcome.

Thank you in advance.

It seems rather Chinese because I can not recognize some characters.

The title would be ”魚躍:fish leaping" and the author would be "乙(*)仲夏郭去水 書(old form). I can not recognize the second character of author's name.

You could find something when you close up the signature seal and make image search of it on google.
