Yu shan Rau?
CLOSER THAN i WAS, YOURS BROUGHT ME TO>>>
I had been trying Y. S. Pau
The original tiger was made by Liu Jiyou, Chinese, 1918–1983, though I believe your item is not by Liu Jiyou. The design is clearly inspired by Liu Jiyou's piece though. I do not necessarily think the Cranes are of the same artist Liu Jiyou, as the style of the artwork is quite different to his other pieces as can be found int he Bio Link following. The Crane imagery is quite a common choice for artists and there are many out there whom the original of this piece could have been based on, including this artist directly, though if they've copied the artwork of one, they may have simply done so again with the cranes painting. No, all that said, I could be mistaken of course, but the signature to me, does not appear to match to the lettering for Liu Jiyou. I realise this does not help a great deal with identifying the artist for your particular pieces, but it is good to know this none the less.
Can you decipher the lettering on Bonnie's works to give her an idea of the artist's name?
Not without a close up photo of each, hopefully obscured by the white matt board.
Both images appear to have the Chinese text partially covered up.
Unfortunately, some Chinese characters require the entirety of the character to translate accurately. I see part of the characters are covered in some instances, uncertain how much, but this could dramatically change the overall translation, assuming the correct character is being read at all due to it being calligraphy which has a tendency of being difficult to read at the best of times.
The left or right half of a character may have meaning on its own, but when paired with the other side, can change the meaning entirely.
I am sorry I can't be of more help with this one.
