    張大千 桃花/游魚/小鳥 設色紙本 鏡框 一九八〇年作

    款識:唼藻吹萍逐隊多,偶逢投食亂如梭。一生不解江河大,奈爾陂塘跳擲何。八十二叟爰,[民國] 六十九年(1980)中秋前三日作。
    鈐印:庚申、張爰之印、大千居士、摩耶精舍、大千豪髮

    來源:台灣私人收藏

    本幅為畫家晚歲作品,當時張大千目力漸退,非但無損其作畫熱忱和水平,有時更為作品平添一份拙樸的趣味。當時,其畫作多由秘書與親人負責鈐印,本幅的「大千居士」一印上下反轉,相信為其親自所蓋,而非假他人之手。大千的桃花游魚系列畫作極少繪有小鳥,本幅匠心獨運,巧置一鳥於湖石之上,令畫面奇趣頓生,尤為罕見珍貴。此畫蓋有大千五璽,推知為居士甚為喜愛並十分滿意之作。
