  • Thumbnail for Fan painting - Calligraphy
    Fan painting - Calligraphy by Jinyu, called Shaofang

    Twelve double lines written in a running script followed by the date, dedication and title. Three pages from the Shan hai jing. Despite the specific date and clearly written name, the writer remains unidentified. There are, in a standard dictionary, three different men with the pen name of Shaofang famous for their calligraphy who lived in the nineteenth century. None can be positively identified with this artist. The title refers to an early classic work. The structure of the characters leaves a bit to be desired. The interaction of the smaller lines within the overall structure of the characters is not tight, and lines bend and twist with no relation to the whole.
