Huai-su (725 ?) was a native of Ch'ang-sha, Hunan province. His secular name was Ch'ien,
and his style name was Ts'ang-chen. This handscroll is also known as the "Ch'ien-chin-t'ieh"
("Thousand Gold Volume") after the comment by Yao Kung-shou of the Ming dynasty that it is
worth a thousand pieces of gold. Huai-su is well-known for his K'uang ts'ao ("wild cursive
script"), but this work, which was produced late in his life when he was sixty-three,
indicates his state of mind in old age in its simple and temperate atmosphere.
