Oneness: Calligraphy by Professor Jao Tsung-I

Professor Jao Tsung-i (1917 – 2018) is an internationally-renowned sinologist who excelled in academia, painting and calligraphy, as well as literature, with outstanding achievements and contributions in all of them. Professor Jao’s calligraphy gives a glimpse of his dignity as a cultivated scholar and a master calligrapher. His profound knowledge in Chinese palaeography enabled him to expertly write oracle bone script, bronze script, bamboo and wood scripts, silk script, as well as take creative liberties with seal script, clerical script, cursive script, running script and regular script, being able to keep exploring and innovating. To showcase Professor Jao’s calligraphic achievements and to promote Chinese traditional culture, with the help of the Macao Museum of Art, we have selected 15 sets of calligraphic works by Professor Jao, now presenting the exhibition Oneness: Calligraphy by Professor Jao Tsung-I. It's a wonderful occasion for the public to fully appreciate his calligraphy and feel the complex beauty and profoundity of Chinese characters.
