    來源:
    陳少蓀舊藏

    註:「少蓀」即陳少蓀(1894-?),吳湖帆姻親知交。吳日記中常有類似「陳少蓀來,長談至午夜」的記錄。陳氏亦為蘇州人,喜繪事收藏,其舊藏多有吳為之題裱邊者,市場偶有釋出。民國三十二年(1943),滬上同是光緒甲午年出生的名人名伶二十人,年齡總和整千,發起「甲午同庚千齡會」,以文藝聲援抗戰,吳陳亦在其中。近日蘇州博物館的「梅景傳家--清代蘇州吳氏的收藏」展中,有一《金玉其相》冊,其中有吳題「民國三十年歲次辛巳仲秋十日,為長男詢承陳少蓀姻兄、陳子清世兄執柯,與毅齋內兄之女公子承吉聯姻⋯⋯」,可見陳少蓀更是促成吳湖帆長男婚姻的媒人。

    本幅及拍品編號220皆裱於板上,背後有成立於一九〇二年香港華彰號裝框畫廊地址並電話 (尚僅六位號碼)。
