Calligraphy is the art of decorative and harmonious penmanship. In Asian calligraphy, the artist generally seeks to create a sense of inspiration and grace through strong and soft touches of the brush and changes in the lines of the letters or ideograms. Through calligraphy, letters can express emotion and thought not only by the words they form, but by their appearance. Hence, great calligraphy conveys aesthetic, intellectual, and spiritual beauty.
The Calligraphy gallery showcases the finest works of master calligraphers and presents epigraphical artifacts, such as rubbed copies and tombstones, to enhance the understanding and appreciation of calligraphy culture.
