Emperor Huizong (personal name Zhao Ji) was good at calligraphy and painting, being masterful in all the subjects of landscapes, figures, and birds-and-flowers. In calligraphy, the brush force in his running, cursive, and regular scripts is strong yet spirited, approaching the method of Huang Tingjian. Reaching back to the style of Xue Ji, Huizong developed a bony yet strong manner of his own that became known as "slender gold script." This work consists of a five-character regulated verse, the characters being exceptionally large at almost five Chinese inches tall and the largest of any surviving example of Huizong's calligraphy. The brushwork is even more upstanding than in small-character calligraphy. "Slender gold script" was a calligraphic style created by Huizong that especially emphasized sharp and strong strokes, the movement of retracting the brush for vertical and horizontal strokes revealing particular attention. The left-falling diagonal strokes are also as sharp as a knife, and the right-falling ones as strong as bent steel, the flicked hooks expressing speed that emphasizes gesture.
