The monk Huaisu, originally going by the surname Qian and the style name Cangzhen, was a native of Changsha (or Lingling) in Hunan. Achieving renown in his hometown for cursive script, he later headed north to Chang-an, where famous people at the time presented poetry in admiration of his calligraphy. In the "dingsi" year of the Dali reign (corresponding to 777), he transcribed these verses of praise along with a preface by the master calligrapher Yan Zhenqing to compose this handscroll. Some of the lines here refer to natural phenomena or use exaggerated phrases to describe the beauty of Huaisu's cursive script. Other passages praise him as an inheritor of the "wild and crazy" cursive script of Zhang Xu in his pursuit of unusual and unbridled qualities. The entire work was done with fine yet strong brushwork, the features continuous throughout for an unlimited range of unusual expressions, making this the ultimate in the art of cursive script.
