Example of Calligraphy and Emotion


A draft of a funeral oration for Yan Ji Ming, Yan Zhen Qing's nephew. Yan Ji Ming was killed by An Lu Shan. His arms were cut off before he was killed. This is draft was wrote with grief and indignation.
The calligraphy is powerful with unconstrained brush. Grief and indignation appear between the lines.
Xian Yu Shu of Yuan dynasty said :" this is the second best Xing Shu calligraphy under the sky. Lan Ting Xu is the best." The style of Lan Ting Xu is totally different from Ji Zhi Wen Gao. It's hard to say which one is the best, which one is the second best. Maybe we should say these two are all the best.
