Online lecture. Zhao Mengfu (1254-1322), legendary painter, poet, calligrapher and seal maker of the early Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368), is considered as one of the greatest and most influential masters of art and literature in China. His special brand of calligraphic style, with fluidity, strength and grace, earned him the honorific title of the “School of Zhao”, an art genre that is held in the highest esteem by all aficionados of Chinese culture. A pioneer of a new Yuan painting style, Zhao was a master painter of figures, horses, flowers, birds, and especially landscapes. To mark the 700th anniversary of the passing of Zhao Mengfu and better appreciate the master’s artistic and literary creations, the Renwen Society presents a lecture on September 10 by Mr. Ben Wang, Senior Lecturer of Language and Humanities of China Institute. Mr. Wang will present and analyze Zhao Mengfu’s versatile attainments in calligraphy, painting, poetry and seal-making.
