    陳逸飛 橋下泛舟 油彩畫布 木框

    簽名:Chen Yifei

    來源:現任收藏家於2001年在加州直接得自畫家本人

    畫家另外一幅類似題材的油畫〈樹影之橋〉,於2009年10月6日在香港蘇富比拍賣,拍品563號

    陳逸飛筆下的水鄉風情萬種,由國外的威尼斯到國內的江南,水鄉之於陳逸飛,深具意義。據畫家本人憶述:「家門口有一條大河通向海,媽媽帶我乘船,從這裡離開故鄉。」陳逸飛出生於寧波市鎮海縣,幼年即隨家人移居上海,直到長大出國讀書,總是遠離他記憶中「小橋、流水、人家」的故鄉。好友楊明義發現江南周莊與畫家思念的故鄉很相似,兩人結伴前往寫生,從此,江南水鄉便成為陳逸飛的重要題材。

    拍品 818〈橋下泛舟〉是陳逸飛的晚期作品,畫風比較貼近印象派,一改前期「浪漫寫實主義」風格,也掙脫其早年江南水鄉的藍色憂鬱氣氛。畫家以明亮和諧的色調描繪出一幅如夢似幻的水鄉風景,朦朧中彷彿重回兒時舊地。正如哈默 (Armand Hammer) 所說 ,陳逸飛的水鄉風景是一首首「畫詩」。
