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。

    溥儒 佛說阿彌陀經 水墨紙本 冊頁四開 一九五二年作
    趙恒惖題簽
    李炳南、汪辟畺、張公潛題跋

    款識:(《佛說阿彌陀經》,詳文不錄)雪廬炳南居士,平生之學,儒經內典,博洽通貫,詩文醫術,亦莫不精醇高異。亙數十年,弘法度人,垂慈雲法雨,懿歟敻哉。非大士示現,婆娑而何耶?今創辦臺中蓮社,傳菩薩戒,功德無可估量爾。感其慈善高得,故書此經。壬辰(1952)春日,西山逸士溥儒。
    鈐印:溥儒之印、心畬

    (一)
    題跋:天文有分埜,地輿有分形。寶光古刹內,茂木何森森。鸚鵡說妙法,迦陵演清音。彌陀大頻力,本無惡道林。壬辰(1952)春月,李炳南。
    鈐印:李炳南

    (二)
    題跋:近廿年,清室懿親以詩詞書畫有名於時者,莫如溥貝子儒。清末未嘗知名,入民國後乃顯。畫宗馬夏,直逼宋苑,題咏尤美人,品高潔,今之趙子固也。其詩以近體絕句為工致,其書以細真為上,用筆高古,功夫到處。格法同歸,妙悟通時,工拙一致,機趣所之,生發不窮。此冊乃心畬先生精醇典範之寶翰,參以禪意,則筆筆金剛寶杵,莊嚴法度,字字珠璣,愛煞人也。雪廬吾師囑。方湖汪辟畺。
    鈐印:汪辟畺

    (三)
    題跋:跋舊王孫儒寫阿彌陀經。阿彌陀經禮上方,隨緣來玄莫量。行行前輩昇庵裡,了了中田羅漢堂。世間自樂容我住,曼陀花雨自天香。壬辰(1952)春月,蓮社初始,洹上張公潛。
    鈐印:張公潛

    來源:
    亞洲重要私人珍藏。原藏家於一九五〇至五一年間,曾參與台中蓮社籌備及建設,並追隨雪廬居士李炳南先生修習佛法,時雪廬居士正宣講《阿彌陀經》。經其引介,得識溥儒、趙恆惕諸位先生。蓮社建成後,溥儒曾為蓮社手書正殿柱聯,並為雪廬居士書經多部,此為其一。居士圓寂後,輾轉經蓮社道友手中獲此冊〈佛說阿彌陀經〉供養,並由其家人珍藏至今。

    上款:李炳南(1890-1986),名豔,號雪廬,山東濟南人。自幼穎悟好學,通讀諸子經史,兼治歧黃。不惑乃皈依印光法師,以淨宗為業。一九四九年隻身渡海來台,次年籌組成立臺中蓮社,講經弘法,帶動全臺讀經禮佛風氣。陸續創辦慈光圖書館、育幼院、醫院、救濟院等,救災恤貧,施醫捨藥,績效卓著。雪廬「平生為學,儒經內典,博洽淹貫,詩文、法學、與夫醫術,亦莫不精醇高異」。有《阿彌陀經摘注接蒙暨義蘊》、《弘護小品彙存》、《詩階述唐》、《雪廬詩文集》等經注詩文著作多種傳世。

    註:本冊〈佛說阿彌陀經〉四開共九頁,乃溥氏因蓮社成立誌慶,感李炳南居士「慈善高德」所寫贈。溥儒髫齡習字,以家藏晉唐宋元墨跡,日夕臨習不輟,其楷書嚴謹精妙,近代無出其右者。又以小楷有晉人法度,台靜農讚其「隽雅有勁氣,甚為難得,惜不多作」,觀此冊〈佛說阿彌陀經〉,精研整飭,筆筆不苟,又靈動俊雅,可知台老所言不虛。
