Xu Wei 徐谓 (1521-1593)
Cursive script
Xu Wei was born in Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province. His designated name was Wenchang
文长 and his literary
name was Tianchi
天池, but then he changed it to Qingteng 青藤 in his later years. He was a respected poet and
painter as well as a noted calligrapher. His work is very original, taking a new perspective through
freedom of line. This scroll was completed during the Longqing reign (1567-1572) when he was in his prime.
