Dear all,

It is interesting to see how from 张铁山 the threads wander to calligraphy IP.

Dear Joey,

[ quote ] I need some advice, guys. I really need to look at a number of artists, and decide what I most love, so I can get the most 'bang for the buck' as they say. I think I'd rather get more all calligraphy bottles. Especially with inscriptions in Lishu, like a couple Richard posted. WONDERFUL CALLIGRAPHY!

I will like to add Li Ru Chen ( 李如琛 ) to the list of IP calligrapher  -  Please refer to the previous threads on her. She is really good at the standard script ( 楷书 ). I post one of her bottles for sharing ( both sides of a bottle ). She won the Wang Xi San gold medal in the calligraphy segment.

In my  opinion  Li Ruchen  is currently  the  best calligraphy   VMIPB  artist   who is  actively  painting  and  her   work  is  still  affordable  (  US$2 -3  K depending  on bottle   size  and number  of  characters)

Her work  is  now   on a  par   with  Nei  Lei ( =  Yi Ding) ,  who  is   8  years  older  and   has already  given  up  painting   1000 x  character  bottles.  (LRC  born   1982,  Nei Lei  born 1974 * )

Personally, I  prefer  Nei Lei's   work  because  his   characters  are  more   cursive ,  whereas  LRC's  are  more  stylized ( as  if  type-set) 

But   regardless,  these   multi-character  bottles  are  amazing

Cheers  Peter

PS  :  Take  a  look  at this  amazing  LRC     character bottle  I saw  in   Zhang  Lei's   SH   MIPB  shop   last  year,  priced  RMB39,800  . It's  a very  big  bottle - I  put a  normal  bottle  alongside   for  comparison .  I would  have  bought  it  myself  if not  for the  fact  that  I  don't  collect  such  large  bottles 

PPS  * See  what  you can  do  in  30 seconds   with my  data  base ?

Thank you Inn Bok, Peter and George.
   I think Steven posted a Li Ruchen calligraphy example from my collection in mid-Feb.2013. Yes she is superb, and I will get a few more. I agree with Peter, Nei Lei (Yi Ding) has superb work as well. Anyone have one for sale?  Cheesy
