Wen Cheng-ming (1470-1559) was a native of Chang-chou, Kiangsu. His given name was Pi, his style name was Cheng-ming, and his sobriquets were Ting-yun-sheng and Heng-shan chu-shih. He was known by his style name in later years. An accomplished poet, writer, painter, and calligrapher, he is known along with Shen Chou (1427-1509), Tang Yin (1470-1523), and Qiu Ying (ca. 1494-1552) as one of the Four Masters of the Ming Dynasty. When Wen first started writing calligraphy, he studied the calligraphy of the Sung (960-1279) and Yuan (1279-1368) dynasties. His later calligraphy followed styles of the Chin (265-420) and Tang (618-907) dynasties. Any script which Wen chose to write was exquisite. The brush method used in this work seems to hold an inner strength, and its spirit seems to exude from the characters, creating a radiant and luminous style. According to an inscription on the end of this scroll, this work was executed when Wen was eighty-nine. The brushstrokes of this fine work, however, are still vigorous, without any hint of hesitation or lack of concentration.
