About Chinese Traditional Painting and Calligraphy
What is Calligraphy?
Calligraphy is an ancient form of writing in China, much like how Europeans historically used the quill pen.In China's history, people have been using the brush and ink for centuries. This practice persisted until the mid-20th century when modern writing tools became widespread. Over thousands of years, Chinese script has evolved into various writing styles, each with its unique beauty, transitioning from early structured forms to more loosely written styles.The primary styles include "Seal Script," "Clerical Script," "Regular Script," and "Running Script."
