The Upright Brush: Yan Zheqing's Calligraphy and Song Literati Politics (Softcover)
McNair, Amy
6.0 x 9.0", 272 pp., 47 b/w illustrations, paper, Honolulu, 1998.
In the history of Chinese calligraphy, few are more famous than the eighth-century statesman Yan Zhenqing (709-785). Despite his reputation, Yang's style cannot be called conventionally attractive. In this book, the author argues for the political rather than purely aesthetic basis for Yang Zhenqing's reputation. In addition to being an artistic biography of Yang Zhenqing, this work focuses on several calligraphic masterpieces, ranging from the written draft of the eulogy for his nephew to the rugged grandeur of his cliff engravings.
