Chu Yun-ming: On Tsu Yun-hui's Birthday

Ming Dynasty / hanging scroll / ink on paper

Chu Yun-ming (1460-1526), Hsi-che by style name, was a native of Ch'ang-chou (Soochow). Because he was born six-fingered on the right hand, his sobriquets were Chih-shan and Chih-chih-sheng ("Chih" means "six-fingered"). He demonstrated his best talent in calligraphy, was close to T'ang Yin from the same district, and is called the Four Talents in the region of Wu along with Wen Chengming, T'ang Yin and Hsu Chen-ch'ing. This work was produced to celebrate the thirtieth birthday of his friend Tsu Yun-hui. The keynote of this piece is the small standard script which is intermingled with the semi-cursive script indicating the freedom of brushstrokes
