    姜國芳 寂寞的紫禁城 油彩畫布 木框 一九九八年作

    簽名:國芳 1998年10月、Jiang Guo Fang

    來源:購自香港佳士得1999年4月25日拍賣,拍品317號

    姜國芳出生於江西省,1978年從中央美術學院油畫系畢業後留校任教,1984年再入該學院油畫研修班深造,四年後成為職業畫家,1992年開始與香港少勵畫廊合作,曾多次在香港舉辦個人畫展。

    他自青年時期在北京生活,對紫禁城情有獨鍾,十幾年來把西方古典主義之油畫美學和中國藝術中的秦漢之風、唐宋之韻結合,創作出多幅〈紫禁城系列〉作品,深受國內外尤其西歐和北美收藏家、博物館的青睞。清史專家王樹元教授稱姜國芳發現了紫禁城,是中國當代唯一發掘此題材的油畫家。藝術評論家張曉軍則視〈紫禁城系列〉為他走向獨立和成熟風格的標誌。

    此幅拍品〈寂寞的紫禁城〉呈現姜國芳常用手法,以一束暖光投射到畫面主題的中心,來刻劃人物細微的神情變化和服飾的華美。空間的明暗對比表現宮殿的神秘氣息和人物的內在情感-恬靜、憂患、甚至苦澀。
