    張大千 桃山瀑布 設色紙本 立軸 一九七〇年作

    款識:仲光仁兄即乞教,[民國] 五十九年 (1970)五月,蜀郡張大千爰。
    鈐印: 張爰、大千居士

    來源:
    前台灣武陵農場場長蕭仲光直接得自畫家
    陳啟康 (1916-1977) 舊藏

    武陵農場位於台灣省台中市,為台灣三大高山農場之一,也是著名的避暑勝地,桃山瀑布乃武陵必遊之地。1970年,張大千赴台四遊橫貫公路,並於五月遊覽武陵農場,受到前國民黨少將副軍長、時任武陵農場場長蕭仲光先生的盛情款待。此幅清潤秀逸的〈桃山瀑布〉,正是張大千1970年遊覽武陵農場後,特為蕭仲光所作。張大千回到美國加州之後,還曾特意創作了一幅七言詩書法寫寄蕭仲光,由此可見兩人情誼。(該書法可參見香港佳士得2008年5月26日拍賣,拍品編號1045。)

    此幅〈桃山瀑布〉以水墨和石青暈濕渲染,營造山形與雲水飛動之迷濛意象,並以細筆皴擦勾勒出山石樹亭。妍麗秀潤,氣韻生動。氣勢磅礴之中,又透出幾分石濤筆意。

    註:此畫後為美國舊金山僑領暨著名收藏家陳啟康先生收藏。陳啟康(Stanley K.H. Chan)自五十年代起,於加州經營旅館和房地產十分成功,曾任三邑總會館主席,該會乃駐美中華總會館下之七大會館之一。他同時喜愛收藏藝術品,並擔任舊金山古董商會會長,收藏甚豐。陳啟康先生去世後,其藏品隨之陸續釋出。
