Footnotes

  • 張大千 還我讀書眼 設色紙本 鏡片 一九六四年作

    還我讀書眼
    予以目眚,乞方瀛表而術,歲窮比返芳洲。潤之醫宗爲施妙技,鍼錍並進,日起有功,復明之望可期。感□之餘,因作斯圖,並録山谷舊句爲贈,不足酬高誼萬一也。

    鈐印: 張大千長幸大吉又日利,張爰長壽

    This painting, created by the artist for Dr. J. T. Lou in gratitude for Lou's ophthalmological treatments, represents a particularly fascinating record of Zhang Daqian's long struggle with eyesight problems, a serious issue for any visual artist, especially one of his stature.

    Provenance:
    Given by the artist to Dr. J. T. Lou (陸潤之), Hong Kong, and thence by descent
