The Qing Dynasty was the last period of the feudal society, and it lasted more than 370 years until the Revolution of 1911. Calligraphy in the Qing Dynasty as a whole showed a style trend called "upholding quality". At the end of Ming Dynasty and the beginning of Qing Dynasty, a group of calligraphers such as Fu Shan had innovated and developed the style of calligraphy since King Zhong to a considerable height (the Qing Dynasty’s Wenwang was harsh and Daxing’s literary inquisition, so the prosperity of simple learning in the Qing Dynasty was closely related to the style of seal and official script. Sheng all have a lot to do with it). After entering the Qing Dynasty, people gradually shifted their attention to the calligraphy styles before King Zhong, so that the field of writing that had been lonely for a long time since the Han and Wei Dynasties suddenly prospered at this specific moment, and the wind of seal script and official script flourished. . The so-called "respect for quality" is exactly the simple and humble quality of advocating the ancients. Because of this, the Qing Dynasty became a period of great achievement in calligraphy, and all kinds of characters and calligraphy styles in the past dynasties have been revived and revived with considerable results.
In the early Qing Dynasty, apart from Wang Duo and Fu Shan, who were brought down from the Ming Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty, there were Zheng Xie, Zhu Da, Shi Tao, Wang Shu, Jiang Heng, Jin Nong, Huang Shen, Zhang Zhao, Zheng Xie, etc. .
The main figures in the mid-term calligraphy world are: Liu Yong, Liang Tongshu, Wang Wenzhi, Weng Fanggang, Qian Yu, Deng Shiru, Yi Bingshou, Bao Shichen, He Shaoji, etc.
By the late Qing Dynasty, calligraphy showed a more distinctive style. In order to get rid of the rule of calligraphy for nearly a thousand years, coupled with the phenomenon of "taige style" still existing in the calligraphy world, Bao Shichen, Ruan Yuan, and Kang Youwei all vigorously advocated the study of steles, and the idea of advocating steles influenced the calligraphy circle at that time. Also produced a group of famous calligraphers such as He Shaoji, Zhao Zhiqian, Yang Yisun, Weng Tonghe, Wu Dazheng, Wu Changshuo and so on.
With the advent of the Revolution of 1911, from Xia to Qing, China's consistent imperial era came to an end. The Qing Dynasty, with its special historical period, completed its diligent task of ending the era and making a great achievement in the art of calligraphy. The development of calligraphy art has entered into a new social form. Due to the seriousness of history and the wealth of materials on calligraphers and writers from the Republic of China to the present, the space is limited, so I will not repeat them in vain.
