FROM AN ASIAN PRIVATE COLLECTION
亞洲私人珍藏
LOTS 120-138

This important private collection of works includes 19 lots of classical and modern Chinese paintings. Carefully assembled primarily during the late 1960s and early 1970s from artists and dealers across Hong Kong and London, this collection is a testimony to the friendship between artists and patrons and the respect for traditional Chinese art that the Chinese diaspora still holds. The collection accompanied its late owner to different corners of the world, finally settling in Singapore, where it has remained for almost half a century. Being an extremely private man, the collector never showed any of these works publicly. In offering the collection, the family hopes one can appreciate the love and care that was devoted to the assemblage of the works.
此輯重要私人珍藏,涵十九件中國古代及近現代書畫,主要於上世紀六十年代末七十年代初悉心蒐集而成。彼時藏家往來香港、倫敦兩地,與當地藝壇雅士與書畫商往還頻仍,不僅存留一段畫家與收藏家之間的雅緣佳話,亦見證了海外華人對傳統書畫之推崇歷劫不衰。本輯珍藏曾隨藏家遷游四海,幾經輾轉,最終落腳星洲近半世紀。藏家生性低調,所藏生前從未示人。如今其人駕鶴西遊,所謂欣於所遇,暫得於己,不外乎此。其家人冀透過本次拍賣,令仝好分享他為此所傾注的心血與熱愛。

Footnotes

  • 倪瓚(款) 小亭疏竹圖 水墨紙本 立軸 一三五一年作

    款識:王輞川繪春山而如笑,董北苑繪夏山而如滴,磅礴之氣、蒼鬱之觀,開千秋雄壮門戶。巨然、南宮遂繼其後,此皆循世俗之好已耳。瓚性澄潔,不欲從時尚,明窗淨几,孤況蕭條,戲墨抽毫,聊抒懷抱,寫此小亭疏竹,寒林料峭,蕭索倍增。雖不能得奇逸之趣,而荒涼自愛,興隨筆至,聊期自遣,匪欲從人,用識數言,以伸悃素。雲林生倪瓚,辛卯(1351)七月十二日。
    藏印:商丘宋榮審定真跡、天籟閣、子京、墨林山人、項元汴印、子京珍秘、墨林秘玩

    (周天球,1514-1595)
    題識:雲林作畫,余所見者不下數十種,單條尺幅具有馳驅不羈之妙,所謂指掌之間,若睨千里者,於此得之,真神品也。公瑕周天球題。
    鈐印:周、天球

    (楊循吉,1456-1544)
    題識:倪高士善畫,世所傳者,止能得其枯木竹石已耳。其於山水一道,尤屬能事,卒不輕易為之。此作〈小亭疏竹圖〉,又其別有所寓,非庸工俗手所能擬議。嘉靖癸卯(1543)七月,楊循吉題。
    鈐印:君謙

    (沈周,1427-1509)
    題識:不見倪迂二百年,風流文雅致今傳。偶然把玩山亭下,秋樹蒼煙在目前。弘治庚戌(1490)夏月望後,長洲沈周。
    鈐印:白石翁

    註:據藏家筆錄收藏清單,本幅於一九七一年入藏。
