Pri­vate Let­ters of Suzhou Wu School Artists

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

In an­cient China, let­ters were com­pared to koi fish, wild goose, mes­sen­ger birds and clouds. Let­ters were a medium of com­mu­ni­ca­tion, trav­el­ing miles and miles, car­ry­ing peo­ple’s wor­ries, long­ings and best wishes to their loved ones in re­mote places. In the his­tory of lit­er­a­ture, many pri­vate let­ters of fa­mous his­tor­i­cal fig­ures have been col­lected and ad­mired for gen­er­a­tions. The Shang­hai Mu­seum has a rich col­lec­tion of Ming Dy­nasty literati let­ters, among which those left by Wu School artists are es­pe­cially great in both quan­tity and qual­ity. As his­tor­i­cal records, their con­tents of­fer a com­pre­hen­sive un­der­stand­ing of the pol­i­tics, fam­ily life and artis­tic life of the time. The Wu School artists’ per­sonal lives and ex­pe­ri­ences, their artis­tic con­cepts and aes­thetic tastes, their friends of cir­cles and even the fash­ion in the lit­er­ary and artis­tic world, were pre­served in th­ese pieces.
