    Most well-known for his long and innovative career as a painter of landscapes and flowers, Huang Binhong was also a prominent expert in early calligraphic scripts and the evolution of the written language. This poetic couplet employs the large seal script found on bronze objects dating from the Zhou dynasties (1100-256BCE), prior to the linguistic reforms made during the reign of the first emperor of the Qin dynasty. The lines and thickness of each brushstroke are even and uniform, with the text repeated on the margin of the right scroll.

    眾所周知黃賓虹擅山水、花卉,然其在書法,尤其是早期書體和文字演變,亦造詣精深。本幅大篆對聯,取法周代鐘鼎銘文,筆法流暢蕭散,清剛自然。
