  • 林風眠 捧蓮仕女 設色紙本 鏡框

    款識:林風眠
    鈐印:林風眠印

    註:
    怨情 李白
    美人卷珠簾,深坐顰蛾眉。
    但見淚痕濕,不知心恨誰。

    林風眠喜愛畫仕女,和自幼母子分離有相當關連。林風眠七歲時,母親被賣走,自此對母日夜思念,之後更將思念之情抒發於其畫作中。他筆下的女性,呈現畫家心目中所憧憬的完美女性形象,氣質嫻靜、優雅、溫婉而憂鬱。林風眠的古典仕女,融合了東西方的審美觀念。既吸收了二十世紀初巴黎畫派的新藝術風貌,亦注入了中國傳統陶瓷藝術的因子。修長的身軀,典雅的鵝蛋臉,以及哀傷的眼神,脫胎於西方表現主義莫迪里安尼(Amedeo Modigliani)。此外,他曾說:「我的仕女畫,最主要是受到中國陶瓷藝術的影響。我喜歡唐宋的陶瓷,尤其是宋瓷中官瓷和龍泉窑那種透明的顏色,它帶給我創作的靈感和繪畫技法的啟發。」
