This documentary narrates the artist life of famous seal carver, calligrapher, and painter Qian Juntao who served as vice-president of Xiling Seal-Engraving Society, his large works and rare art collections. It is one publication that seal cutting and painting calligraphers and collectors must have.

QIAN JUNTAO (1906-1998) was born in Tongxiang, Zhejiang Province, China. He was interested in art since his youth and became artistic editor of Kaiming Bookstore in Shanghai at the age of 20. He was dexterous in book binding and cover design. During this tenure in Kaiming he did the cover designs of a number of books by influential writers such as Lu Xun, Mao Dun and Guo Moruo. His interests in calligraphy are wide, and with his ability to absorb the advantages of many master calligraphers, he is competent in many calligraphic forms. His calligraphy work shows the vivid brush movements and a unique presentation style. As for seal carving, he likes to produce large seals with long inscriptions, especially using his own poems or articles as sidebars for his paintings. He made twenty thousand seals in his whole life. He is also excellent in Chinese brush painting, especially in the flower theme. His works were shown in national and international exhibitions and art journals. He published Collection of Works by Qian Juntao, Seal Designs of Lu Xun, Seal Designs for Lu Xun's Pen Names, Archive of Seal Designs by Qian Juntao, and The Origins of Chinese Seals and Chops (co-authored with Ye Luyuan).

Qian Juntao is a prominent arts appraiser, and has a large art collection worthy several hundred millions. In 1985, he contributed more than 4000 precious cultural relics collected by himself to the nation, so the Government of Tongxiang built Juntao Art House to treasure up these works, also to exhibit other art works, which also serve as a workshop of artists. In 1996, Qian Juntao contributed 1000 valuable historic relics and his works of art to Haining City, and the Haining Government built Qian Juntao Art Institute.

钱君匋 (1906 - 1998),原名玉棠,学名锦堂,字君,以字行,别署午斋、豫堂,1906年生于浙江桐乡屠甸镇。少好艺事,20岁任上海开明书店美术编辑,擅书籍装帧艺术,其时鲁迅、茅盾、郭沫若等许多著作的装帧设计均出自其手。书法涉猎广泛,善于兼取博收,擅多种书体。篆法致力于邓石如、吴让之、赵之谦,隶书宗《乙瑛碑》、《史晨碑》旁及汉简帛书,魏书师法《龙门二十品》,草书则得益于怀素、张旭。书作结体精严,笔意醋畅,跌宕生姿,自具风貌。篆刻则功底深厚,风格多样,善刻巨印长跋,尤喜以自作诗词散文刻为边款,印面力能扛鼎,边款灵气荡漾。亦擅国画,以花卉见长。作品多次入选国内外重大书法展览及在专业报刊发表。

钱君匋先生是中国当代“一身精三艺,九十臻高峰”的著名篆刻书画家。曾任西泠印社副社长、上海文艺出版社编审、上海市政协委员等职。他一生治印两万余方,上溯秦汉玺印,下取晚清诸家精髓。其风格有吴昌硕的老辣、奔放;有赵之谦的浑厚、飘逸;有黄牧甫的清隽、平整。真可谓是疾术駸駸,鹤立印坛,名烁中外,卓然一大家也。君匋先生是一位诗、书、画、印熔于一身的艺术家,诸方面都有至高的造诣和贡献。

本片原载二组极其珍贵的长镜特写画面,生动地纪录了九十二岁高龄的钱君匋行笔磊落,驰如风雨,掷点像空中坠石的作画态恣以及笔痕纵横自如,或如屋漏痕水,或如老藤盘枝,或如惊蛇入草,或如快兔逸坡的绘画技巧,充分表现了钱君匋绘画的“极简练处极精到,极奇特处极稳健,极雄厚处极含蓄”的艺术境界。

本片以大量的钱君匋作品和他的价值数亿的珍贵收藏为拍摄对象,材料翔实,资料丰富,信息量大,别有一番气象,加之运用现代影视手段,使本片除了具有观赏价值外,还可成为广大篆刻书画爱好者鉴赏、收藏的出版物。
