He was a follower of Su Shih, and excelled in poetry, prose, calligraphy and painting. However, he became a victim of a political dispute and died in exile in I-chou. He is one of the Four Great Masters of Sung calligraphy. This work is an inscription of the poem exhorting good and admonishing evil by the legendary T'ang dynasty Buddhist sage Han-shan and that extolling the virtues of the Buddha by the unique hermit P'ang Yun. It is T'ing-chien masterpiece produced in his later years, which indicates the magnanimity of his touches as well as the temperament of his superb spirit and abnegation of worldly affairs.
