    趙少昂 金魚 設色紙本 鏡框 一九四六年作

    款識:細雨飄時生,微風動處沉。[民國] 卅五年(1946)冬至,少昂於紅香爐峰。
    鈐印:少昂

    來源:西班牙私人收藏

    趙少昂名垣,字叔儀,原籍廣東番禺,與黎雄才、關山月、楊善深並稱為第二代嶺南畫派四大名家。趙氏十六歲跟從高奇峰(1889-1933)學習「折衷中外、融合古今」之新國畫,並吸取日本和西洋藝術精華,三十歲左右已發展出個人特色。他的畫面佈局巧妙而奇險,配合其硬毫偏鋒和幾近水彩畫之寫生花卉,加上如急瀉山澗泉流般的行草書體,別具匠心。

    趙氏擅長花鳥走獸,也以山水畫見長。著名國畫師吳作人先生(1908-1997)曾對其作品給予高度評價:「於山水、人物、走獸、翎毛、花木、蟲魚,無所不能,而又以花鳥蟲魚,擇精取萃,傳寫入微,最為人所珍愛。」(參見吳作人〈嶺南巨匠:寫在趙少昂畫展之前〉,《人民日報》1982年10月18日。)
