Yang Wei-chen (1299-1370), the renowned literati from late Yuan times, is also
well known as a master of calligraphy. His uninhibited and unorthodox calligraphy
style is comparable with works of calligraphy written by Ch'an Buddhist monks.
He freely manipulates the brush fully emersed in ink, and even his airy dry brush
strokes are distinctive. The work is Yang's only extant example in hanging scroll form.
