Shih-tao: Essay in Running Script

Ching Dynasty / hanging scroll / ink on paper

This artist whose religious name is Yuan Chi (1640-ca.1707), is known by his style name Shih-tao. He has long been acclaimed as painter but he is also a superb calligrapher known for his individualistic simplified seal-type script, standard style script, and the running script. This work, a rare hanging scroll by Shih-tao, is an inscription executed in clear and accurate running script on the rules for painting and calligraphy. The contents refer to self-discipline and a warning to the world, and are interesting in learning Shih-tao's view on art.
