Poems in Standard Script

Calligraphy on paper and silk using the brush and ink has a wide variety of forms, depending on how the brush and ink are used, how the characters are written, and how they are composed on the paper. In China, calligraphy became increasingly commercial from the 16th century, and forms and expressions diversified in response to demand. This exhibition features calligraphy from the mid-Ming and early Qing dynasties, as well as calligraphy from the 16th and 17th centuries, showing the diversity of expression in Chinese calligraphy
