I found this set of 4 old Asian pieces of art in a folder I picked up at a yard sale a few years ago. The size of the paper measures 10 3/4" X 14" and the images themselves measure 8" across X 11" high. Each piece of artwork is backed by a very thin sheet of rice paper. They appear to be hand painted but I am not positive. I guess they could be block prints. They all have flecks of gold scattered throughout. Each one has what I am guessing is the artists signature in black and the red ink seal (year-date-publisher).

I am embarrassed to say that I honestly don't know if they are Chinese or Japanese. If anyone can give me any information regarding these pieces (age, artist, time period, culture etc.,) I would be most appreciative. Thank you in advance for taking a look and sharing any knowledge you may have.
