Lot Details
SELECTED FINE PAINTINGS AND CALLIGRAPHY WORKS BY PU RU
溥儒工筆及楷書精選
LOTS 163-172

世愛溥儒,愛其雋永清逸,無煙火塵埃;又其幽默詼諧,常妙語連珠;亦愛其博文淹貫,有王公貴冑氣;更愛其天馬行空,如羚羊掛角,遷想妙得。
本輯聚溥儒楷書及工筆十幅,得小楷三,金箋長聯一,工筆山水人物小卷二,瓶花、設色觀音各一,回文詩圓光及工筆重彩成扇各一,皆為溥氏所最擅,繼為人所追捧者。尤其〈佛說阿彌陀經〉冊,乃一九五二年春為台中蓮社成立,書為雪盧居士以誌,雋雅靈動,堪為近世小楷之楷模。

Footnotes

  • 溥儒 觀音 設色紙本 鏡框 一九三九年作

    款識:己卯(1939)孟陬,沐手敬寫,為母資福。溥儒稽䫙,回向供奉廣化寺。
    鈐印:溥儒之印、心畬

    註:眾所周知,溥儒篤信佛教,侍親至孝,生母項太夫人一九三七年病逝,在廣化寺守靈,溥儒不惜以四萬大洋賤賣陸機〈平復帖〉予張伯駒,以籌資厚葬項太夫人。此後,每年先慈祭日,溥儒必抄經或寫觀音為母祈福。本幅作於項太夫人往生後兩年,觀音呈立姿於蓮花座上,左手執橄欖瓶,右手執蓮花,神態莊嚴靜美,慣常所見溥儒觀音,以白描居多,本幅敷色濃郁而沈厚古雅,線條靈動飄逸,且寫於近四尺整幅,乃溥儒作品中稀見者。
