This album recorded 81 pieces of Professor Jao’s work in 2004. All paintings and calligraphies are full of strength and motion, they outbreak all boundaries of past masters. Many items are of large size, such magnificent spirit is rarely seen even in the past masters; Wen Zheng Ming had Jao’s elegance but not the strength, and Wang Duo had his strength but not the depth. Professor Jao’s use of ink and brush is so versatile that gives his work a unique style.
By viewing these art pieces, we figured that Prof Jao has explored new horizons. The album illustrates not only the achievement of Professor Jao Tsung-I, but also projects the everlasting nature of Chinese art.
