Footnotes

  • Wu Hufan (1894-1968), a native of Suzhou in Jiangsu Province was one of the most important artists and connoisseurs of Chinese art in the early twentieth century. As a descendant of the seal carved connoisseur Wu Dacheng (1835-1902), Wu Hufan was provided with unprecedented opportunities to study and research classical Chinese paintings. Wu's variation of painting styles perceives a consistency in classic Chinese brush and ink paintings.

    Kang Weigong (1874-1950) was a native of Wuxian in Jiangsu Province and an scholar-official of the late Qing dynasty.

    The postscripts on the current lot explain that the painting was commissioned as a gift to Yuan Zhenying (1894-1979), a native of Guangzhou and the funding member of the Socialist Youth League in Shanghai.

    1948年 吳湖帆 秋山幽壑圖 設色紙本 摺扇

    題款:震瀛先生出舊楮屬,畫此漫教,時戊子(1948)二月。吳湖帆。
    鈐印:「梅景書屋」(朱文方印)、「湖颿書畫」(白文方印)

    題款:拂雲衝曉去,鄉夢逐征鞍。雨氣乘嵐瘴,溪聲瀉石湍。出窩蜂一鬨,轉磨蟻千盤。戀戀樽前酒,龍山眼倦看。誰家好籬落,秋滿豆花邊。雞唱催殘月,蛙聲沸曉天。橋危奔急漲,邨遠起孤煙。二頃虛生計,勞蹤付短鞭。戊子(1948)三月,書似震瀛先生雅正。亢惟恭時年七十有五。
    鈐印:「甲戌生」(朱文長方印)、「橒叟」(朱文方印)

    吳湖帆(1894-1968),自名翼燕,字遹駿,號醜簃,齋名梅景書屋。江蘇蘇州人。吳氏自十三歲學畫,習四王及董法,遠追宋元,因祖父是著名的金石收藏家吳大澂(1835-1902),耳濡目染,為他提供了很好的學習根基。後成為故宮博物院審查委員,能直接參拜古代名畫,涉獵更廣。其畫風乾濕並用,對比鮮明,變化多但不離古法;善設色,尤其青綠;其沒骨之法,清韵風華。

    亢惟恭(1874-1950),字壽銘,號惕盦。江蘇吳縣人,出於史家巷。晚清秀才,雅好詩文,著有《惕盦诗稿》七卷。

    有關上款震瀛先生,歷史上字震瀛的人物有袁振英(1894-1979),字震瀛,號黃龍道人。出生於廣東東莞縣溫塘村。先後參與上海、廣州共產黨早期組織,為上海共產主義小組成員,上海社會主義青年團創始人之一。
