    高劍父 芍藥 設色紙本 立軸 一九三八年題

    款識:是作為余昔年清遊會即席所作,社友宋順之見而索歸。今順之往矣,適為老友張菊圃先生所得,屬托補題,爰綴數語,以見翰 [墨] 因緣,然不勝今昔之感矣。 [民國] 廿七年(1938)春,劍父識。
    鈐印:崙、劍父

    題識:畫友高劍父君素嫻中華六法,參以泰西新術,自成一家。此用舊法寫芍藥一叢,風神掩映欲活,為其得意之筆,不肯贈人,予強索得之,洵足珍矣。癸酉(1933)夏日,癯菴識。
    藏印:彥成之印、楳花銕石山房珍藏書畫印

    來源:美國舊金山私人收藏

    註:宋彥成(約1865—1936),字順之,號癯庵,著有《琴學易知》四卷,為陳樹人、高劍父等發起的「清遊會」之社員。

    二十世紀二十年代初,陳樹人、高劍父等在廣東發起「清遊會」,於宴游雅集之間賦詩作畫,交流治學經驗,共推國學文化。高劍父在一次「清遊會」活動中即席創作了此得意之作「芍藥」,自珍之而不願贈人,其後為宋彥成「強索得之」,宋氏遂於1933年題識以記之。宋氏作古後,該畫作由張菊圃獲得,張氏於1938年又屬托高劍父再題款識。
