Chu Ta (1626 – 1750) was a descendant of the Ming Dynasty royal family. He was from Nanchang, and he became a hermit after the Ming Dynasty perished. Sometimes, he practiced Taoism, sometimes he practiced Buddhism, and sometimes he pretended to be ignorant. In the early years, his regular writing style was founded on the "Tablet Inscription for Master Dao Yin by Ouyang Tong in the Tang Dynasty." As for his semi-cursive writing style, he started out by learning the shape and spirit of handwriting in Tung Chi-chang's style. However, in his lifelong study, he also imitated the handwritings of Zhang Zhi, Suo Jing, Wang Xizhi, Wang Xianzhi, Ouyang Xun, Chu Suilang, Li Yong, Yan Zhenqing, Huai Su, Mi Fu and Wang Chong. Among those precedents, Wang Chong's style of combining words in a few strokes might have inspired him considerably. However, what represents his style best was the cursive writing in this calligraphy painting. He could operate the pen and produce seal characters with strokes that were thick and even, and round and smooth. The Chinese characters were sometimes closely knit together and sometimes loosely arranged. Sometimes he focus his strengths on the sides, sometimes he reversed his strokes, and sometimes he evenly arranged the strengths of strokes on those characters. He skillfully combined novelty with regularity to produce surprises. In this calligraphy painting, he used the worn-out writing brush and round and smooth strokes to write and show his heroic mind that he was proud of.
