On 29 December 2022, Institute of Excellent Traditional Culture, China Cloud Computing Center, International Eurasian Academy of Sciences, Tao Shengyuan Works Research Institute, announced the launch of global traceability and anti-counterfeiting of Tao Shengyuan’s calligraphy and painting works.
Chinese painting and calligraphy are one of the earliest forms of traditional Chinese art, and have been practised since primitive times with a high degree of aesthetic interest and creative talent. From ancient times to the present, painting and calligraphy have been the representatives of elegant art, with supreme artistic value and collection value. However, paintings and calligraphy have always faced the challenge of identification and traceability. The identification of authenticity has become an issue in the world of art. With the advancement of science, there are some conventional scientific methods for identification, such as the use of microscopic magnification and analysis, X-ray transmission, spectral analysis and other modern techniques, but painting and calligraphy forgery have been around for a long time. Some members of the industry still believe that paintings and calligraphy are difficult to identify by conventional means, and therefore can only be identified as genuine on paper. Hence, later generations can use the paper of their predecessors as a basis for forgery. Therefore, it is not safe to rely on paper either. Nowadays, there is a solution to this dilemma. Institute of Excellent Traditional Culture, China Cloud Computing Center, International Eurasian Academy of Sciences, Tao Shengyuan Works Research Institute, relies on digital code traceability technology to digitally trace works of art through “cloud computing” and combines the tamper-evident nature of blockchain technology to add a binding “identity card” to each painting and calligraphy work with digital code traceability technology.
It is understood that Tao Shengyuan was listed as the only calligrapher selected for the large-scale traditionalized variety show “Inheritance in Progress” jointly produced by the General Administration of Radio, Film and Television, Beijing Radio and Television and the Institute of Traditional Culture, and broadcast to the world through China.com. China.com (China Internet News Centre) is a national key news website led by the Information Office of the State Council. It is a “super network platform” that publishes information in eleven languages and has readers in over 200 countries and regions around the world.
In order to safeguard the influence of Tao Shengyuan’s authentic calligraphy and painting in society, the traceability and anti-counterfeiting work of his works is now announced to the world: First, people in mainland China needs to do the traceability work at the Tao Shengyuan Works Research Institute from January 7 to 15, 2023, people in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan from February 7 to 15, 2023, and people overseas and those who in European and American regions from March 7 to 15, 2023. The second is that this traceability work will re-integrate the authentic Tao Shengyuan handwriting into the fingerprint impression, and scan it into the database of the Cloud Computing Center of the Eurasian Academy of Sciences to replenish the identification seal of the Institute and the seal of the collection. The Eurasian Academy of Sciences is the largest and most prestigious international academy in the world.
Born in March 1950, Tao Shengyuan is a native of Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province, and currently holds important positions in many cultural and artistic societies, associations and research associations at home and abroad.
