Footnotes

  • 清 竹雕李方膺〈瀟湘風竹圖〉臂擱

    「畫史從來不畫風,我於難處奪天工,請看尺幅瀟湘竹,滿耳丁東萬玉空。戊辰(1748)冬月晴江李方膺」
    「李」篆文圓印

    表面平滑,打磨及拗光完美,上淺刻李方膺〈瀟湘風竹圖〉,竹葉和小草傾斜,借景物之動態表現出風勢之強勁,正如題款「畫史從來不畫風,我於難處奪天工,請看尺幅瀟湘竹,滿耳丁東萬玉空。戊辰(1748)冬月晴江李方膺」,鈐印:「李」。雕刻家刀工細膩,以刀代筆,表現出筆墨之乾濕濃淡,鐡筆淡描,富文人氣息。

    李方膺(1695-1755),字虬仲,號晴江,江蘇南通人,畫史中被稱為揚州八怪之一。曾任樂安縣令,蘭山縣令、潛山縣令等,擺官後以賣畫為生,擅人物花鳥等,以墨氣淋漓見稱,別具一格。〈瀟湘風竹圖〉之題款與本拍品內容一致,唯該畫中題「乾隆十六年(1751)寫於合肥五柳軒」,是李氏被擺官以後的作品。此圖現藏南京博物館。

    以繪畫之法入竹的竹雕技巧,以周芷巖「鐡筆淡描」派最為有名,此流派在清雍正、乾隆時期最為全盛,一直到清晚期。
