East Asian calligraphy

Asian calligraphy typically uses ink brushes to write Chinese characters
(called Hanzi in Chinese, Hanja in Korean, Kanji in Japanese, and Hán
Tu in Vietnamese). Calligraphy (in Chinese, Shufa 書法, in Korean, Seoye
書藝, in Japanese Shodō 書道, all meaning “the way of
writing”) is considered an important art in East Asia and the most
refined form of East Asian painting.

Four Treasures of the Study 文房四宝

Four Jewels of the Study or Four Friends of the Study

is an expression used to denote the brush, ink, paper and ink stone used
in Chinese and other East Asian calligraphic traditions. The name
appears to originate in the time of the Southern and Northern Dynasties
(420-589 AD).

by grand master calligrapher Kuwahara Suihou (桑原翠邦) who was the most
talented pupil of grand master Hidai Tenrai (比田井天来), often called “the
father of modern calligraphy”. Grand master Hidai Tenrai was an
initiator of avant-garde calligraphy in Japan, a trend that has had
great influence not only on Chinese artists and calligraphers but also
modern abstract painters, sculptors, etc., all over the world.

KIGO for the New Year
First Calligraphy, kakizome 書初め

….. kissho 吉書 “auspicious writing”

On January 2, people take the brush for the first time in the New Year.
The ink is ground with fresh first water (wakamizu) from the well. The
words written include a wish for the New Year or some auspicious poems.

The writing is hung at the Shelf of the Gods (kamidana), to make the deities aware of your wish.

Others burn the paper outside and judge from the hight of the smoke and
paper pieces if the Gods accept your offering and your writing will
improve in the coming year.

First Birthday Calligraphy in India

haiku topic for India

We have calligraphy in every Indian language – an art that was practiced
most widely, until the computer fonts came into being! The most
preferred is the Sanskritised letters in English – English lettering
which resembles the Sanskrit script.

On a child’s first birthday – his/ her hand is guided by the Hindu
priest who writes the first letters of the alphabets of the child mother
tongue, on rice [with the husk] placed on a plate.

Granduca Pietro Leopoldo tra la fine del Settecento e l’inizio dell’Ottocento.

La Galleria è situata in alcuni fra i più bei saloni del Palazzo (dal quale deriva appunto il nome Palatina cioè del Palazzo), nel piano nobile. La superba collezione di dipinti è centrata sul periodo del tardo Rinascimento e il barocco, l’epoca d’oro del palazzo stesso, ed è il più importante esempio in Italia di quadreria, dove, a differenza di un allestimento museale moderno, i quadri non sono esposti con criteri sistematici, ma puramente decorativi, coprendo tutta la superficie della parete in schemi simmetrici, molto fedele all’allestimento originario voluto dal Granduca Pietro Leopoldo tra la fine del Settecento e l’inizio dell’Ottocento.
