Why this is a
Masterpiece

Even though this scroll is a Tang Dynasty facsimile, it faithfully recreates the spirit of the original work. The front and back of this scroll include imperial seal marks of the Southern Tang and Northern Song dynasties as well as seal marks from successive dynasties. Retaining the Northern Song imperial mounting style, it is really a rare treasure of Chinese art.

History of the Object
Wang Xizhi (307 – 365), a calligrapher of the Eastern Jin dynasty, was also known by his zi (designated name) Yi Shao. A native of Langya, Linyi (in present-day Shangdong province) and later moved to Huiji Shanyin (present-day Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province), he was a high ranking official, known as “Wang Youjun”. As a child he studied with Lady Wei Shuo, and later studied extensively with masters of calligraphy. He finally created a beautiful modern style of his own.
