Zhu Wanzhang’s interpretation of An Eulogium on a Humble Cell by Zhao Mengfu
In the eyes of later researchers, Zhao Mengfu was a prolific and long-lived calligrapher in the late Song Dynasty and early Yuan Dynasty. Different periods had different learning objects and creative ideas.
Zhu Wanzhang, a researcher at the National Museum of China, believes that the significance of this calligraphy work of An Eulogium on a Humble Cell and its position in Zhao’s art history are extraordinary.
Zhu Wanzhang pointed out that Zhao Mengfu had integrated his own ideas into the volume based on his predecessors, but it was still very limited. “Later, in his practice of the ancients, he learned from many different schools, and gradually formed his own style, so that he could get out of the shadow of the ancients and become a great man of a generation.” #artandculture
