On view are 28 written scrolls and rubbings in a major exhibition of calligraphy, regarded by the Chinese as the supreme artistic achievement. On display for the first time is a 4th-century rubbing, the only surviving version of a work by the co-founder of a school of calligraphy. A selection of writing instruments supplements the exhibit.
