Zhang Shoushi 张瘦石
Zhang Shoushi (1898-1969) was born in Jiading of Shanghai, China. Since young, he loved Chinese calligraphy, probably due to his family’s scholarly tradition and the influence of his grand uncle Nianyi. Later he had learned various model calligraphic works from many accomplished calligraphers including Wu Changshuo.
He passed away in September 1969 at the age of 66.
