The British Museum featuring Gu Kaizhi

British Museum copy of Gu Kaizhi’s scroll entitled ‘Admonitions of the Court Instructress’ originally dated from the 5th Century C.E.

I’m currently studying Gu Kaizhi’s life and works.  However I wanted to share some of the artworks accurately attributed to him in this article.

I have particular interest in ancient paintings, poetry, calligraphy and scribal writings from China.
