    吳冠中 遊山圖 設色紙本 立軸 一九八〇年代作

    鈐印:八十年代、吳冠中印

    來源:美國賓州私人收藏

    一九八〇年代,水墨成為吳冠中創作的主要手法,一般認為不論其數量或質量都有壓倒油畫之勢。根據藝評家水天中先生的看法,吳冠中最擅長描繪山巒的起伏、草木的枝杈、巖石的紋理、屋宇的錯落等題材,因為這些景物最能讓他發揮水墨點線的疏密、力度和韻律。(參見水天中等編,《吳冠中全集》第一卷,湖南美術出版社,中國長沙,2007年,頁22。)從山景的描繪來看,吳冠中的處理方式雖有別於傳統水墨遵循的技法,但與歷代水墨畫大師的精神靈犀相通。

    在此幅〈遊山圖〉中,吳冠中利用連貫而流動的線條,勾勒高峻陡峭的硬石山巒;以溼筆淡墨營造水氣潤澤的韻致;濃墨趨向飛白的表現,則暗示着層層的古木密林和山頂一瀉而下的瀑布。古代畫家常在壯麗山巒中加入人物或亭子,來傳達一種避世隱居的思想,同時強調大自然的宏偉永恆和人類的渺小。雖然將人物和亭子降到最小比例,他巧妙添加紅、黃、藍等色點,猶如仙女棒般,點出人物的動感和天地的奧妙。吳冠中眼中的山巒藴藏着無窮的生命律動,值得細細品味。

    同前幅〈蘇州獅子林〉一樣,此畫雖有畫家常用的印章,但並無簽名,符合畫家水墨畫創作的習慣。
