Chiang Yee's CHINESE CALLIGRAPHY, the first book published in English on Chinese calligraphy, is the indispensable introductory book about the aesthetics of Chinese calligraphy/5(2). Superlative historical survey of the fine art of Chinese calligraphy. This richly-rewarding and beautifully published book comes to us from Japan.

The book's contents consists of 95 color plates of historical masterpieces, most of which are located in Japanese collections.5/5(2).

Chinese calligraphy has a wonderful and lengthy history, that is well explained in this book. This tome will provide you with a framework for understanding some of the characters, and put you at ease in trying to learn to write characters yourself. Even my Chinese tutor was impressed when I showed it to by: 4.

This is a history of calligraphy, describing the various styles, how the characters are formed. It also discusses Chinese painting and the origins of I Ching.

There are some plates that you can cover with tracing paper/greaseproof paper for practice, but that is not what this book is designed for. I recommend it if you are new to Chinese by: This book, which introduces the Westerner to a rich and mysterious world, is based on a classic compilation of the Chinese language done in the 18th century, which determined that all the characters then in use were devised from root pictographs or symbols/5.

My First Book of Chinese Calligraphy is a fun and engaging introduction to one of China's most celebrated arts and crafts for kids. Calligraphy—the art of producing decorative handwriting or lettering with a pen or brush—has been around for thousands of years/5(49).

Chinese calligraphy, with its artistic as well as utilitarian values, has been treasured for its formal beauty for more than three millennia. This lavishly illustrated book brings to English language readers for the first time a full account of calligraphy in China, including its history, theory, and importance in Chinese culture.

Ancient Chinese poets used the style of the calligraphy characters to help represent the words on the paper. Such as a poem by eighth century poet, Wang Wei that describes water splashing from one rock to another where the brush strokes are not perfectly formed.

You can see the effect of the water spraying into the air from one rock to another. The greatest exponents of Chinese calligraphy were Wang Xizhi and his son Wang Xianzhi in the 4th century. Few of their original works have survived, but a number of their writings were engraved on stone tablets and woodblocks, and rubbings were made from them.

Many great calligraphers imitated their styles. Calligraphy established itself as the most important ancient Chinese art form alongside painting, first coming to the fore during the Han dynasty ( BCE - CE). All educated men and some court women were expected to be proficient at it, an expectation which remained well into modern times.

Ancient China Simplified – Written in the early s, this book covers the history of China – from its very beginnings to provinces, literature, the Chinese calendar, rulers, and more. This Is China: The First 5, Years – This book is great for teachers, students, and anyone interested in a basic overview of Chinese history.

The history of Chinese calligraphy is as long as that of China itself. Calligraphy is one of the highest forms of Chinese art. In studying Chinese calligraphy one must learn something of the origins of Chinese language and of how they were originally written.

However, except for those brought up in the artistic traditions of the country. When this book was first published, there were few if any important studies dealing with Chinese brushwork and its crucial role in Chinese art. The present volume, by a noted scholar, calligrapher, and artist, was the first significant "A volume of great value to the admirer of Chinese art that also contains much practical advice for the student."/5.

Ancient. The History of Chinese Calligraphy. Chinese calligraphy has an extensive history of about 1, years. It is a unique artistic form of Chinese cultural treasure and represents Chinese art. It is reputed to be the most ancient artistic type in oriental world history.

Calligraphy initially began due to the need to record ideas and information. Chinese calligraphy is the writing of Chinese characters as an art form, combining purely visual art and interpretation of the literary meaning. This type of expression has been widely practiced in China and has been generally held in high esteem across East Asia.

Calligraphy is considered as one of the four best friends of ancient Chinese literati, along with playing stringed musical Hanja: 書藝.

Wang Xizhi 王羲之[ - ] or Wang Hsi-chih WG Wang Xizhi (王羲之) was a Chinese calligrapher, traditionally referred to as the “Sage of Calligraphy” 书圣.
