|Other Titles:||No Effect from Three Yuan Brothers ’Intimate Friend Huang Hui in the History of Calligraphy|
Department of Chinese, NTNU
Huang Hui was a candidate in Sichuan provincial examination in Wanli Emperor Wanli first year (1573) and passed the national highest examination in 1589. Highly praised in poetry, literature, calligraphy and Zen, he went into Hanlin Academy with Jiao Hong, Tao Wangling, Dong Qichang, Yuan Zongdao, etc. Later on, he was close to Three Yuan Brothers and often exchanging ideas and thoughts concerning Tao, presented in articles and poems. However, his name was seldom noted in the history of literature or calligraphy history. Some scholars advocate the re-recognition of his contribution in calligraphy history. Nevertheless, this dissertation will hold a different view: Though Huang Hui was proficient in calligraphy, he was not recommended by experts, and secondly, he was too dedicated in exploring Buddhism to actively engage in calligraphy and calligraphic review. Additionally, he was retired from public and lived in Sichuan in his middle age and therefore had little impact on literary and calligraphic realms. Though in his calligraphy reveals an exceptional charm out from a heart not seeking fame or applause from outside, it is not necessary to over-rated his influence in calligraphy history.
