Xizhi Wang

Chinese calligrapher; said be the exemplar of the high art of calligraphy, a master of every form but particularly of the running script (xingshu Chinese “行書”)

His most famous work is the "Preface to the Poems Composed at the Orchid Pavilion" (Chinese: 蘭亭序; Hanyu Pinyin: Lán Tíng Xù), the preface of a collection of poems written by a number of poets when gathering at Lan Ting near the town of Shaoxing in Zhejiang for the Spring Purification Festival). The original is lost, but there is a number of fine tracing copies and rubbings.
