  • 林風眠 藍衣仕女 設色紙本 立軸

    款識:林風眠
    鈐印:林風眠印

    註:
    古詩十九首 輕輕河畔草
    輕輕河畔草,鬱鬱園中柳。盈盈樓上女,皎皎當窗牖。娥娥紅粉妝,芊芊出素手。

    1956年,林風眠的妻女遠渡重洋,避居巴西,一別廿年。期間,畫家將自己倍受煎熬的思念,盡賦于紙墨。娉娉婷婷畫中人,縈縈繞繞心中思。畫中清麗的少女,身著洋裝,背景花團錦簇,洋溢著生命的喜悅。這是林風眠在古典仕女之外的另一種仕女畫法,是雷諾瓦(Pierre-Auguste Renoir)的印象主義在中國再現。用富麗的色彩,歌頌女性的柔美幸福,但畫中人物卻是道地的中國臉孔。明亮的陽光自窗外灑入室內,甜美、悠閒的氣氛充斥畫面,彷彿能觸摸到少女身穿的藍絲絨外套。
