    朱德群 生命的律動 油彩畫布 木框 一九七五年作

    背面簽名:德群繪于1975年,景昭題贈于2012年5月于巴黎。

    來源: 楊允達博士於1982年左右在巴黎獲畫家相贈

    楊允達博士於1973年3月12日,開始出任台灣中央社駐巴黎特派員,次年,經旅法畫家彭萬墀介紹,結識畫家朱德群。經多次往還,楊博士有感於朱德群勤於繪藝,敦厚誠懇,有意作深度專訪,向國內外介紹他的作品。楊博士隨後於1982年5月在《香港明報月刊》發表〈朱德群教授談現代繪畫〉專輯,並刊出十五幅彩色畫作,接著又在台北聯合報撰寫專文介紹朱德群,引起港台兩地美術界人士的注目。

    此件畫作〈生命的律動〉為朱德群1975年所作,畫家非常喜歡此畫,繪成後一直掛於畫家的臥室。三十年前楊允達夫婦應邀到朱德群家晚餐,飯後聚談甚歡,臨別前畫家一時興起,從臥室牆上取下這幅油畫相贈。楊氏夫婦返家後才發現畫面沒有簽名,但他們對此並不在意,而且認為如要畫家補簽,隨時都可以辦到。不料2009年元月畫家突然腦中風,歷時三年不見好轉。楊博士於今年5月返巴黎期間,應朱夫人董景昭之邀前往他們在巴黎近郊的別墅午餐,順便攜帶這幅油畫,在朱德群教授面前,由董景昭題簽「德群繪于1975年,景昭題贈于2012年5月于巴黎。」這件作品雖尺幅不大,但意義非凡。它是朱德群在享譽國際之前所創作的精品,也是被畫家本人所珍愛的代表性作品。
