Description

Aoyama Sanu was a calligrapher and a professor at Daito Bunka University who transformed the literati calligraphy of the Chinese Qing period. He expressed his admiration for the faithful spirit by transcribing in a running script the 6th-century poems of the Tang poet Du Fu. The hanging scroll on the right reads, "Inscription on the wall of monk Xuan Wu’s studio"; the hanging scroll on the left, "Staying at boat in Kui Zhou and not getting on the land because of the heavy rain."
