About Master Zhang Da-Chian:

Zhang’s Chinese calligraphy styles were derived from the “Wei Bei” styles. Pu Hsin-Yu had inscribed poems and calligraphy on Zhang’s paintings many times as shown in this video.

Chang Dai-ch’ien was born in Nei-chiang, Szechwan province, in 1899, and died in 1983 at the age of 85. As a painter he had his own unique style and was one of the greatest painters in the history of modern art. Moreover there are many legendary anecdotes from his life such as having studied textile dyeing in Japan and having joined a Buddhist monastery as a monk, and having journeyed to Tun-huang during wartime to make copies of the cave paintings. Wherever he lived, Chang Dai-ch’ien’s residences were expressions of his good taste. All of them, “Plum Blossom Village” in Szechwan, the “Garden of Eight Virtues” in Brazil, “Ko Yi Chu (The Habitable)” “Huan-pi Retreat” in the United States and the Abode of Maya in Wai-shuang-hsi, Taipei, had beautiful gardens.
