An ancient form of calligraphy was used in this scroll by an early 20th century Chinese scholar to express his admiration for the work of a fellow calligrapher. Loosely translated as "clever hand," the characters have a bold and charming quality that allows them to be appreciated as abstract art apart from the sentiment they convey. Circa 1920, this piece is signed and sealed by the calligrapher Li Fung Gung. The calligraphy, on paper, is in very good condition and is mounted on silk. The scroll no longer hangs completely flat, which could be remedied, if it is a concern, by rescrolling or framing. Dimensions of the scroll: height 61" (155 cm), width 13-1/2" (34 cm). Dimensions of the calligraphy work: height 47" (119 cm), width 11" (28 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
