Huang Tingjian's "Tie to Yue Yun"

   Huang Tingjian (1045.8.9-1105.5.24), courtesy name Luzhi, nicknamed Valley Taoist, later nicknamed Fu Weng, was born in Fenning, Hongzhou (now Xiushui County, Jiangxi Province). He was a famous writer and calligrapher in the Northern Song Dynasty. The founder of the Poetry School, together with Du Fu, Chen Shidao and Chen Yuyi, is known as the "one ancestor and three sects" (Huang Tingjian is one of them). Together with Zhang Lei, Chao Buzhi, and Qin Guan, they all studied under Su Shi's sect, and they were collectively known as the "Four Scholars of the Su School". During his lifetime, he was as famous as Su Shi and was known as "Su Huang" in the world. 

He is the author of "Valley Ci", and Huang Tingjian's calligraphy is also unique, and he is one of the "Four Calligraphers of the Song Dynasty".

   Huang Tingjian's "Tie to Yue Yun", the fourth volume of "Calligraphy and Painting Inscriptions and Postscripts" compiled by Yu Pangqing of the Ming Dynasty, and the fifth volume of Wang Diyu's "Coral Net" are all recorded, as well as the postscripts of Lu You and Hu Changru. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, it was included in "Kuaixuetang Tie" and "Huang Wenjie Public Law Calligraphy and Stone Carvings", and only the rubbings remain today.


    Send Yue Yun and An Jiuxia. No leisure, really chic. Bixitou, under the ancient pine trees. Lying in Pantuo, day after night.

    Bade water is clear and beautiful. Swallow your spirit and soak your teeth. The roots of chaotic clouds are among the peaks. Scooping and pouring, follow the utensils.
