Chinese Calligraphy Exhibition & Stone Carvings Inscription from China
(In lieu of a preface) By Huang Miaozi
My friendship with Wu Zuguang started in Chongqing in the 1930s. I also had the chance to know his father, Mr. Wu Jingzhou, because I was Zuguang’s friend. Mr. Wu Jingzhou was good at paintings and calligraphies as well as painting assessment. I was lucky to have the chance to learn from him. After the victory of the Anti-Japanese War, I was lucky enough to have a look at his collections in Nanjing. It was really an honor of my lifetime. I came to Beijing in the 1960s and Zuguang and Fengxia also came here. They moved to Majiamiao and their father came to Beijing to have his illness recovered. I remembered that I once went to look after him with Mr. Ye Gongzhuo. At that time, his grandson, Wu Huan, was still an infant in his Mum’s arms. I came back from overseas this autumn and Wu Huan asked me to write an inscription on a painting named Shijiaotu (describing friendship) according to his Grandfather’s words. Now, the Grandfather, Mr. Wu Jingzhou had passed away; while the Grandson, Wu Huan has just stood out conspicuously. It is my duty to do something in memory of this because I cherish friendships with three generations of this family.
Mr. Wu was a diligent collector and a learned painter; He was a person of firm, virtuous and with high ideals. In order to memorize my friendship with his family; I write on the painting my inscriptions to cherish.
