Attributed to be Xie An (謝安) Ba Yue Wu Ri Tie (The Fifth Day of The Eighth Month Tie)《八月五日帖》, ink on paper, 23.3 x 25.7 cm, National Palace Museum

Text:  八月五日告淵、朗、廓、攸、靖、玄、允等。何圖酷禍暴集,中郎奄至逝沒。哀痛崩慟,五情破裂,不自堪忍,當奈何,當復奈何。汝等哀慕斷絕,號啕深至,豈可為心。奈何,奈何。安疏。

The piece is attributed to be written Xie An (謝安) (320–385). It may be an imitation. This is a mourning letter telling the sudden death Zhonglang (中郎), a government official. He expressed his heartfelt pain and unbearable feelings.

  1. Thank you for sharing even I do not understand the real technique and stroke of the Chinese Calligraphy. Chinese Calligraphy was beautiful and artistry. I wish it will keep on rolling from generation to generation.
