    林風眠 向日葵 設色紙本 鏡框

    款識﹕向明先生正,林風眠。
    鈐印﹕林風眠印

    來源﹕美國舊金山私人收藏

    著名藝術史學家蘇立文 (Michael Sullivan) 讚揚林風眠為「真正的中國繪畫的先驅者」。靜物畫是林氏探索「調和中西」的重要創作之一,將西方傳統題材揉合中國彩墨而成的全新畫風,拍品764這幅〈向日葵〉正呈現了林氏靜物畫的這種特點。畫家並採用其獨特的「方紙佈陣」構圖方式,巧妙地配置不同幾何形狀的物品,整體構圖平穩又能突出主體向日葵。色調深沉的背景也是畫家的一貫風格,此處的「暗黑」成功襯托出向日葵的「亮黃」。花瓶和窗簾以白色線條勾勒強調,表現出背光的透明效果,融會了馬諦斯 (Henri Matisse) 的技法。
