Wang Hsi-chih:
Three Passages of Calligraphy--P'ing-an, Ho-ju and Feng-chu
Wang Hsi-chih first studied calligraphy under Madame Wei and later also turned his interests widely to the works of master calligraphers of previous periods to assimilate their virtues. He thereby created an fluent style based on tradition yet which was a transformation of the manner of calligraphy theretofore. The eloquent and graceful calligraphic style of these three passages are revered as the optimal and eternal ideal of the semi-cursive script.
