See 27 works from the permanent collection by more than 30 calligraphers. Many of the objects date from the mid-first century B.C. to the 20th century, with almost half dating to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) These examples include all 4 major scripts (seal, clerical, running, and cursive) and the 4 primary formats (hanging, scroll, album leaf, and folding fan).
