Wang To (1592-1652), the representative romanticist of late Ming times, transcribed
the last part of the "Kuan-chun-tieh" and the first part of "Chun-nien-tieh", both of
which are letters and included in the second volume of Chun-hua-ke-tieh written by Chang CHih.
The calligrpaher has completely assimilated Wang Hsi-chih's style, and this work
exemplifies Wang To's talent in the fluent and vigorous brush work and the ingenious composition
freely using the continuous script. It was produced when Wang To was fifty-six.
