Qian Juntao 钱君陶

(B. 1907 –1998 )

Mr Qian Juntao was born in Dongxiang, Zhejiang Province, a native of Hai Ning. He lived in Shanghai in the 1920s, and was consultant to the Shanghai Calligraphers’ Association, vice president of Xileng Seal Society, and principal of Juntao Art Academy.

Qian was a versatile artist who excelled in decorative art, painting, music, and seal carving. In his early years he did graphic design for several famous literary magazines, and further edited and published a few books on music, fine art, and literature. After his retirement in the early 1970s, he devoted his time to painting, calligraphy and seal carving, which won him acclaim overseas and locally. He was an expert in the regular, cursive and seal styles of calligraphy, able to integrate the art of seals with that of calligraphic inscriptions on the sides of seals. His calligraphy too was influenced by metal-and-stone art, becoming amazingly energetic.

In 1987 and 1997, Qian donated his precious collections of more than 4,000 items of art and relics to the Dongxiang City, his beloved hometown. Included among Qian’s various publications are Long March Seal Album; Juntao Seal Album; Selection of Exquisite Seals by Qian Juntao on Art; and Traces of Dreams of Spring.
