Wen Zhengming (style name Cheng-chug, sobriquet Heng-shan chu-shih) was a native of Chang-chou, Kiangsu provice. When he was fifty-three, he went to Peking to serve as an academician in the Hanlin Academy and participated in the compilation of the Veritable Records of the Emperor Wu-tsung. Afterwards, he grew disillusioned with his official lifestyle in Peking, returned to his hometown, and took up the life of a literatus. Living to the age of eighty-nine, he excelled as a poet, essayist, calligrapher, and artist, and became a leader in the artistic community of Suchou during the middle Ming period. Wen Cheng-ming was a calligrapher skilled in all script types. For running or semi-cursive and cursive scripts, he followed the tradition of Wang Hsi-chih and studied Huang Ting-chien and Zhao Meng-fu. In this hanging scroll, he has written large characters in running cursive calligraphy, fully revealing his own style. The brushwork is strong, tensile, and fluid, and a kind of energy permeates the entire work. In the poem, he mentions a monastery on Mt. Tai-ping which he probably saw in the environs of Suchou during late spring.
