The cursive script (sometimes called grass script, cursive hand) is a fully cursive script according to certain rules. With drastic simplifications requiring specialized knowledge; a person who can read the semi-cursive script cannot be expected to read the cursive script without training. Entire characters may be written without lifting the brush from the paper at all, and characters frequently flow into one another. Strokes are modified or eliminated completely to facilitate smooth writing and to create a beautiful, abstract appearance although like irregular. Characters are highly rounded and soft in appearance, with a noticeable lack of angular lines. Due to the drastic simplification and ligature involved, this script is not considered particularly legible to the average person, and thus has never achieved widespread use beyond the realm of literati calligraphers.

Cursive script originated in China during the Han dynasty through Jin Dynasty period, in two phases. First, an early form of cursive developed as a cursory way to write the popular and not yet mature clerical script. Faster ways to write characters developed through four mechanisms: omitting part of a graph, merging strokes together, replacing portions with abbreviated forms (such as one stroke to replace four dots), or modifying stroke styles. This evolution can best be seen on extant bamboo and wooden slats from the period, on which the use of early cursive and immature clerical forms is intermingled. This early form of cursive script, based on clerical script, is now called zhāngcǎo, and variously also termed ancient cursive, draft cursive or clerical cursive in English, to differentiate it from modern cursive (jīncǎo). Modern cursive evolved from this older cursive in the Wei Kingdom to Jin dynasty with influence from the semi-cursive and standard styles. Beside zhāngcǎo and the "modern cursive", there is the "wild cursive" (kuángcǎo) which is even more cursive and illegible. It was developed by Zhang Xu and Huai Su in Tang dynasty.

The most representative works in cursive script: Seventeen Book of Models of Handwriting by Wang Xizhi, Treatise on Calligraphy by Sun Guoting, A Model of Four Ancient Poems by Zhang Xu, Auto-biography by Huai Su.

Shiqi Tie is named a collection of twenty-nine letters written by Wang Xizhi after the first two characters "shiqi" (seventeen) of the first letter. Wang's elegant, exceptionally glamorous cursive script was revered as the supreme model for that type of script in Chinese calligraphy.

商品名称:历代书法临习之草书—王羲之“十七贴”(1VCD)

王羲之是中国的千古书圣,《十七帖》是书圣的草书代表作品,在最早记录王羲之书法的唐张彦远《法书要录》卷十《右军书记》中,《十七帖》便列为压卷第一帖:“《十七帖》长一丈二尺,即贞观中内本也,一百七行,九百四十三字,是烜赫著名帖也。太宗皇帝购求二王书,大王有三千纸,率以一丈二尺为卷……《十七帖》以卷首有‘十七日'字故号之。”《十七帖》内容多言蜀中风情人物,是王羲之写给益州刺史周抚的信礼。

《十七帖》真迹一般认为早已不知下落,唐人的摹熬和临本也只能见到零星单本,甚至残本,如《远宦帖》、《游目帖》,曾经赵孟俯补全的《瞻近帖》、《汉时讲堂帖》等,因此,一般谈《十七帖》者多以传世刻本立论。《王羲之草书十七帖》属于今草范畴,笔意精到,点画方圆并用,结字平中寓奇。虽然他已泯没了章草中的波磔,但却字字独立,上下行势已有连属之意,朴厚灵和之气溢于纸墨之外。可以说是学习草书的最佳范本。
