  • Thumbnail for Letters to Zheng Bangrui
    Letters to Zheng Bangrui

    In the three letters mounted together in this handscroll, which opens with an anonymous portrait of Wang Yangming, his calligraphy is sharp and angular, and the characters are vertically elongated. The brushwork appears rapid and agitated. Wang's calligraphy may reflect anxieties expressed in the content of the letters, which were addressed to his nephew Zheng Bangrui and can be dated to between 1523 and 1525. Wang writes of the burden of managing his family's affairs after the death of his father in 1522, the illness of his wife (who died in 1525) and his obligation to arrange the marriage of a niece. Together, these letters in Wang's own hand provide a rare glimpse into the everyday life of the noted philosopher.
