  • 張大千 潑墨荷花 水墨紙本 鏡框 一九六五年作

    款識:試內山紙頗有墨韻,題似寧一吾兄博教。大千張爰。
    鈐印:張爰之印信、大千居士、乙巳

    註:一九六五年,大千對潑墨潑彩技法的掌握已臻嫻熟,巨幅名作《瑞士雪山》以及梅雲堂藏《雲山古寺》皆出於當年。他遊歷歐洲,於倫敦格羅斯凡納畫廊舉辦個人畫展, 並籌備次年在巴西、香港的畫展。門人林建同說自此之後,其畫「作風大變,潑彩潑墨,大行其道」。

    本幅純以水墨寫,墨韻濃淡分明,呈五色之效。荷葉霸氣而恣意地舒展,荷花一朵盛開,一朵含苞,葉梗施以濃墨,挺拔脩瘦, 滿幅清氣。所用內山和紙,起源於十六世紀,乃日本傳統書畫用紙,以木材纖維製造,發墨效果甚佳。

    《大成》雜誌主編沈葦窗曾在《大千居士與荷花》一文中說,大千告訴他一個畫荷的秘密,凡是這一支荷花桿子一氣呵成、畫得滿意的,他在桿子上是不打點子的,要打點子是有點補拙的意味在內。(《大成》,1983年8月,第117期)。這幅沒有打點的墨荷,顯然是大千很得意的,否則又怎麼會題贈芳鄰好友呢?
