Xian Yushu (1256-1301), a native of Yuyang (today’s Jixian County, Hebei Province), has the name Boji. He lives in Hangzhou and is an official in Taichang Temple. He is good at identifying and practicing grass. His calligraphy is famous for its roundness and strength. He advocates retro style, and together with Zhao Mengfu, he is known as two giants in the Yuan Dynasty calligraphy world. This painting is contained in the first edition of the Collection of Stone Canal Treasures, a catalog in the Qing Palace. It was originally stored in the imperial study and ranked among the top books. Although he writes cursive, he is calm and thick. However, this big character is round and fleshy, which is different from Xianyu’s bone strength.
