    張大千 坡翁食蓮菂絕句 水墨紙本 鏡框 一九八〇年作

    款識:坡翁食蓮菂絕句。剝盡蜂窠玉蛹長,海榴猶遜此甘香。老夫細嚼兒童咲,分得溪邊雁鶩糧。為幼衡小友書之,八十二叟(1980)爰。
    鈐印:張爰之印、大千居士

    來源:台灣私人舊藏直接得自畫家

    此幅作品上款幼衡,即馮幼衡女士。馮女士是張大千晚年的秘書,與先生相知甚深,著有《形象之外:張大千的生活與藝術》(九歌出版社,台北,1983)。書中〈芙蓉・蓮花・及其他〉一章,細述了獲贈此書法的經過。一天,張大千正跟馮幼衡解釋「荷」、「蓮」、「芙蓉」之所指時,興之所致,想起宋蘇東坡一首關於與溪邊鳥兒爭食蓮子的詩,即席以其「藝壇盟主」牛耳筆書之。馮幼衡見全幅寫來如「行雲流水」,即請先生贈之,大千欣然答應,又加書「為幼衡小友書之,八十二叟爰。」,並鈐印二枚。是故此幅書法實屬居士乘興之筆,有其典故,並非泛泛應酬之作。
