Why this is a
Masterpiece

This work, with inscriptions by Mi Youren and Nie Zishu, was once in the Song imperial collection and the Yuan calligrapher Ouyang Xuan’s collection. This is indeed a rare work passed down from Huai Su’s hand.

History of the Object
Huai Su (737 – 799), a calligrapher of the Tang Dynasty, was also a Buddhist monk called Cang Zhen. His family name was Qian, a native of Changsha, Hunan province. Especially outstanding in the “wild” cursive script, he wielded his brush like a whirling rainstorm, with swirling strokes, and was unpredictable yet exacting, which exerted great influences on later calligraphers.
