Other information


Since the 1970s, the Bei Shan Tang has donated about 2,090 ink rubbings to the Art Museum. This catalogue and exhibition feature seventy exquisite specimens from the collection, twenty of which are notable ink rubbings dating from the Song Dynasty, including such unique copies as the Eastern Han's Stele for Xia Cheng (once in the collection of Hua Xia's True Connoisseurship Studio, Zhenshangzhai), Wang Xizhi's works featured in the Quanzhou version of the Song-engraved Model Calligraphies from the Chunhua era (Chunhua ge tie, juan 6–8, once in the collection of Lu Gong) and the Song-carved Model Calligraphies of Yingguang Hall (Yingguangtang tie) of Mi Fu (once in the collection of Xu Weiren).

The fashion for collecting ink rubbings of stone engraving and model calligraphy marks a milestone in the spread of Beijing and Jiangnan literati culture to the Guangdong region. In the Bei Shan Tang collection, rubbings inherited from renowned Guangdong connoisseurs of the Qing Dynasty include the stele of Huashan Temple from the Eastern Han Dynasty (once in the collection of Li Wentian), Li Yong's Stele for Li Sixun of the Tang Dynasty (once in the collection of Wu Rongguang), the Song-engraved On the Seventeenth Day (Shiqi tie) of Wang Xizhi (once in the collection of Kong Guangtao) and the ten sets of Lanting Preface collected by the Southern Song Grand Councillor You Shi (?–1251) during the Lizong reign (1224–1264) (once in the collection of Pan Shicheng's Pavilion for Immortals of Sea and Hill, Haishan xianguan). This collection is of immense cultural significance to Guangdong and Hong Kong.
