    吳冠中 橋中橋 設色紙本 立軸

    鈐印:吳冠中印、八十年代

    來源:芬蘭私人收藏家於1980年代購自日本

    「橋」是吳冠中學藝後偏愛表現的題材之一。他曾獨闢篇幅闡述橋之美孕育了自己的童年,「從古代到現代,從西方到東方的藝術碰撞與融會中,許多問題必須通過橋梁的作用......摸石頭過河就是為建橋作了鋪墊工程;橋,是文化發展中的金鏈條。」(參見《吳冠中畫作誕生記》,人民美術出版社,2008年,頁253。)

    吳冠中數十年來跑遍中國和世界多處,探求橋的形式結構之美,例如 1989年創作的〈塞納河橋〉和2005年完成的〈憶杭州(橋)〉。(依序參見水天中等編,《吳冠中全集 》第六卷,湖南美術出版社,中國長沙,2007年,頁267和《吳冠中全集 》第八卷,2007年,頁270。)

    此幅拍品〈橋中橋〉為吳冠中類似題材中尺寸較大的作品,構圖新穎。排筆大膽刷出右邊橋墩和水中倒影,橋台和兩旁石壁台階則用黑白灰橫向短促線條表現。大橋下別有洞天,江南小鎮映入眼簾。明亮色點和寥寥數筆,勾勒出人物的活動狀態,為素雅的小橋流水人家注入生活氣息。
