李叔同先生临猛龙碑-书赠曾祖父吴剑飞

李叔同先生是中国著名的书法家,画家和音乐教育家,后出家成为我国著名的僧人, 号弘一法师。 他的书法先学魏碑, 尤以张猛龙碑著称, 出家后书法为之变更,便很少书写魏碑体了。  这是他在杭州第一中学任教时, 写给我曾祖父吴剑飞的, 他当时还曾住在我曾祖父家, 这是其中之一,落款为李婴。 我曾祖父也非常喜欢魏碑。

Li Shu Tong (1880-1942) is a famous Chinese painter, poet, calligrapher and musician (his most famous Chinese song is called “送别” which means “Farewell”.  In his later life, he became a very famous monk known as “Hong Yi Fa Shi.”    He learned calligraphy by writing Wei style mostly in the style of Zhang Meng Long.  After he became a monk, his calligraphy changed and he seldom wrote in the Wei style.  When Li Shu Tong was teaching music at Hang Zhou Number 1 Middle School in the 1920s, he wrote the above calligraphy work for my great-grandfather, Wu Jen Fei.  At that time, he was living at my great-grandfather’s house.  This is one of the calligraphy works that he gave to my great-grandfather.  On the painting, he wrote one of his pen names which is Li Ying.  My great-grandfather was also a big fan of Wei style.

这是我祖父临的张猛龙碑, 他非常喜欢魏碑,曾向李叔同先生学习。

This set of calligraphy was written by my great grandfather, 吴剑飞, “Wu Jian Fei” during the 1920s.  As you can see he really loves Zhang Meng Long style of writing and he has learned from Li Shu Tong.
