One Thousand Characters
2 of 2
Chen Chun 陳淳 (1483-1544)
The Thousand Characters has often been the subject of calligraphy. It isa primer for
children written in the Liang Dynasty (502-556) and may be written with alternating scripts or in
one form. In this case Chen Chun completed it in regular script while we have seen that
Zhao Gou (1107-1187) alternated cursive and regular scripts.
