Asian Art Museum Curator, Joseph Chang, reads Poetic lines in semicursive script, Zhang Ruitu (1570–1641).

Translation:

You've shut your door and studied books for many months and years: You've planted pine trees—all now grown into old dragon scales.

This work will be on view at the Asian Art Museum as part of the exhibition, Out of Character: Decoding Chinese Calligraphy (from October 5, 2012–January 13, 2013).
