- Get Involved
April 4, 2009 - October 25, 2009 (new closing date)
Museum: Freer Gallery of Art
Location: Gallery 13 (Chinese Art)
The exhibition showcases the evolution of Chinese calligraphy through six major script types -- oracle-bone, seal, clerical, cursive, running, and standard script -- in the past three millenniums. Eminent calligraphers today both reinterpret the accomplishments of past masters and create original works with unique personal styles, illustrating the art of Chinese calligraphy that continues to present day. Also included in the exhibition are writing tools, such as The Four Treasures of Scholar's Studio -- namely paper, ink stick, brush, and ink stone -- as well as seal and seal paste.
