Cui Suiliang (596 A.D. – 659 A.D) was one of the most important calligraphists in the Tang Dynasty, and he wrote this Kai Shu script when he was 58-years-old. It is one of the notes that best reflects his style, which was adapted from the Li Shu script. He learned from Yu Shinan, then turned to Zhong You, and, later, the great Wang Xizhi when he was old.
