Chinese Calligraphy and It's Expression

The word "calligraphy" is originally a Greek word meaning "beautiful writing". In China, calligraphy, one of the traditional four arts dating back to the earliest days of Chinese history, is admired and displayed in museums just as paintings are.

For the Chinese, the ancient art of the written word is not just a method of communication but also a means of expressing the dynamic forces of the natural world. By controlling the concentration of ink, the thickness and absorption of the paper, and the flexibility of the brush, the artist is free to produce an infinite variety of styles and forms. Chinese calligraphy serves the purpose of conveying thought but also shows the "abstract" beauty of the line. Rhythm, line, and structure are more perfectly embodied in calligraphy than in painting or sculpture.

羲之真迹难觅,诸皇尊王,高古摹本亦珍, 一字千金

在中国书法史上,就影响力而言,绝对无人能与王羲之比肩。这位被后世尊为“书圣”的东晋大书法家,几千年来一直都是帝王将相和文人墨客心慕手追的对象。正是“最爱”他的唐太宗以“一字千金”遍搜天下之后又以其作品陪葬,使得后世再无得见“大王”真迹的机会。

目前,世界各大博物馆所藏的“王羲之”其实都是高古(唐宋为主)的精摹本,即便是高古摹本,存世的数量也只不过十几件,最为著名的有台北故宫的镇馆之宝《快雪时晴帖》、流失日本的《丧乱帖》等。
