    元 鄭禧(傳) 山居雪霽圖 水墨絹本 手卷

    款識:瑟瑟秋風絲葉丹,崎嶇山路水瀰漫。世間名利奔馳客,到此誰憐行路難。延祐六年(1318)秋日作,吳郡鄭禧。
    鈐印:鄭禧之印、熙之
    藏印:藤花亭鑑藏書畫之章、高士奇印、澹人、子孫永保、高氏鑑賞圖記、江邨、士奇、梁用弧印

    包首:元鄭熙之山居雪霽圖卷。壬戌(1922)十月覆裝,梁用弧識。第捌拾叁號。
    跋尾:《畫史會要》稱,元鄭禧,字熙之,吳郡人。山水學董源,清潤可愛。此卷乃作雪景,大陰霮□中而羣峰峭立,拔地倚天,如劍光相射。峯下屋宇環繞,蹊徑盤紆,舟車人物,衝寒履險之狀,曲盡其妙,真奇筆也。昔人稱畫雪,以關仝《關山積雪》、李成《江山雪霽》為最善,不知比此卷何似?往在陶齋尚書處,觀北苑一立軸,樹石皴染與此如出一手,豈熙之用北苑法,而復參以關仝、李成雪意耶?卷前有江邨印,卷末有高士奇、澹人二印,又高氏鑒賞圖記印,蓋為高江邨所心賞。明陶九成亦稱熙之善書,觀款識信然。庚戌三月望後三日,東莞陳伯陶識於宣武城南旅次。
