Hsu Wei (1521-1592), was well known eccentric painter, but he also excelled in calligraphy.
He cultivated his own style by assimilating those of Su Shih, Huang T'ing-chien, Mi Fei (Mi Fu) etc.
Hsu's talent is fully demonstrated in this work, with his serene brush work overflowing with
vigor and naturalness. His open-hearted and candid calligraphy style is peerless.
