    明末清初書畫鑒藏家朱之赤(十七世紀)、蘇州留園主人劉恕(1759-1816)及廣東藏書家、戲曲家梁廷楠(1796-1861)先後遞藏

    出版:
    梁廷楠,《藤花亭書畫跋》,1858,卷四,立軸,頁34(台北,學海出版社,1977年,413頁)

    註:沈周(1427-1509),字啟南,號石田、白石翁,長洲(今江蘇蘇州)人。詩、書、畫皆精,山水、花鳥為絕,明末李日華譽其「繪事超奇,書法雄麗,吟情灑落」,乃 「吳門畫派」開創者。其祖父孟淵、父恆吉皆以詩文、書畫名於時,家中蒐藏特豐,石田少襲家法,又得摹家中所藏董巨馬夏及宋元諸家,對所習技法掌握自如,變化而出己意,影響所及,如山高水長。與文徵明、唐寅、仇英並稱,為「明四家」之首。

    此幅採「一河兩岸」式構圖,似脫胎於倪瓚《容膝齋圖》。近景蒼松修竹,一高士於亭中愜坐,臨湖遠眺;對岸遠山,重重積疊,山石苔點皴法,皆以梅道人為宗,平淡中顯淳厚之致。
    石田書法,蘇、米之外,最得山谷魂魄,結體頎長緊實,筆劃線條奇崛而自然,樸拙而不做作,得厚重蘊藉的境界。

    「匏庵」乃畫家同鄉好友吳寬(1435-1504),字原博,號匏庵。工詩文,善書法。成化八年(1472)狀元,官至禮部尚書,卒於任,諡文定。石田雖一生未仕,然其有竹居匯四方名士賢達,文會雅集,吟詩作畫,幾無虛日。吳寬、王鏊、文徵明、都穆皆為座上賓,又常結伴同遊,其中石田與匏庵交誼最契。

    王鏊《石田先生墓志銘》中有:「文徵明曰,石田之名,世莫不知,知之深者誰乎?宜莫如吳文定公」。 二人常常書畫互贈,書載有石田作《文定行者圖》卷,三年始成,題詩曰「贈君恥無紫玉玦,贈君更無黃金篁。為君十日畫一山,為君五日畫一水」,是二人詩畫往來之註腳。

    傳世石田為匏庵所作頗多,且多精品,如《觀物之生蔬果冊》(北京故宮藏)、《東莊圖冊》(南京博物院藏)及仿許道寧《秋山晴靄卷》等。吳寬《匏庵家藏集》中,亦多錄與石田往來手札。

    據鈐印考,本幅歷經明末清初鑒藏家所遞藏:《朱卧庵書畫目》作者休寧朱之赤(十七世紀)、蘇州留園主人劉恕(1759-1816)、廣東順德藏書家、戲曲家梁延楠(1796-1861)及廣東南海天蠁樓主黃詠雩(1902-1975)。

    朱之赤,號卧庵,別署煙雲逸叟,安徽休寧人。明末清初書畫鑒藏家,有《朱卧庵書畫目》傳世,所藏石田作品甚夥。

    劉恕(1759-1816),字行之,號蓉峰,齋名寒碧莊,又名寒碧主人,吳縣(今江蘇蘇州)人。精鑒別,富藏古籍、書畫。其所居原名東園,一七九八年修葺完成,改名為寒碧莊。本幅鈐「劉氏寒碧莊印」,可知入藏當為一七九八年後。著有《善本書室藏書志》。

    梁廷楠(1796-1861),字冉章,号藤花亭主人,廣東順德人,戲曲家。其父為當地著名藏家,所藏甚豐,廷楠自幼耳濡目染,琴棋書畫、金石鼎銘無所不精,工吟咏兼通音律。著有《藤花亭書畫跋》、戲曲文集《藤花亭十五種》十卷、《南漢書》十六卷等。

    黃詠雩(1902-1975), 字肇沂,號芋園,廣東南海人。工詩,著有《芋園詩稿十卷》、《天蠁詞四卷》等。上世紀三、四十年代曾任廣州商會執委、廣州市參議員等。酷嗜文物收藏,曾得海山仙館舊藏唐代名琴天蠁琴,故名其室曰「天蠁樓」。上世紀五十年代,所聚文物書畫被迫散出,部分入藏廣東省博物館。

    包首題簽者盧子樞(1900-1978),原名沛森,以字行,號顧樓,廣東東莞人。精鑑書畫,工山水。
