The Calligraphic World of Mi Fu's Art

Tags: calligraphy | Mi Fu | National Palace Museum | painting

The thematic website introduces the art and life of Mi Fu, a scholar-official and master of painting and calligraphy from the Northern Sung period. Dealing mostly with his calligraphy, the contents of this website are divided into two main approaches: a gallery of selected works mostly from the National Palace Museum collection as well as themes based on times and places in Mi Fu's life. Combined with a chronology and map to locate the production of the works, this clearly shows the course of Mi Fu's career as an official, the development of his theories and practices in calligraphy as well as poetry and painting, and the history of his collecting of artworks.
