From the earliest period when calligraphy and painting were raised to the status of art forms in China, successful works have been discussed in terms of nature and the body. From how the brush is held to the posture of the artist, the act of ink painting is intimately tied to the human body. Anatomical terms such as flesh, bone, and sinew have long been used to describe the structure and form of brushwork. These associations allow the viewer to decipher the character of the artist from his or her stylistic choices.
