Encyclopedia > Wei Shuo

Lady Wi Shu (Traditional: 衛鑠, Simplified: 卫铄) (272-349), commonly addressed just as Lady Wei (衛夫人 Wei Furen), was a calligrapher of Eastern Jin Dynasty China who established consequential rules about the Regular Script. A famous disciple of hers is Wang Xizhi.

Born in Dong'an Town (東安邑), Jin He (晉河) (today Xia County, Shanxi), Wei Shuo was the daughter of Wei Zhan (衛展) or the daughter or younger sister of Wei Heng (衛恆). Wei Shuo was a student of Zhong You (鍾繇). However, Wei's style is more narrow than Zhong's wider style.

Wei's The Picture of Ink Brush (筆陣圖) describes the Seven Powers (七勢) that later became the famous Eight Principles of Yong.

Her other works include:

  • Famous Concubine Inscription (名姬帖 Ming Ji Tie)
  • The Inscription of Wei-shi He'nan (衛氏和南帖 Wei-shi He'nan Tie)

Wei was married to Li Ju (李矩), the cishi (刺史) inspector of Ding Prefecture (汀州). Wei and Li had Li Chong (李充), also a calligrapher and a zhongshu shilang (中書侍郎) official.
