Fan painting - Calligraphy

by Wang Sirui

Abstract

24 lines of regular script, alternating between lines of nine and four characters. At the end are four lines with the same arrangement of characters with the date and dedication, followed by the artist's signature in five characters. The identification of this writer is by the last two characters in the signature, which are a pen name of Wang Sirui, from Pinghu in Zhejiang province. He was known for his draft script, which was not often used on fans. Other than that, no information has surfaced. The calligraphy in this example is not overly impressive. Strokes in characters do not have a consistent weight that would give a positive impression overall; they look labored and somewhat scattered over the surface.
