    張大千 羅浮山色 潑墨潑彩金紙卡 鏡心 一九六五年作

    款識:羅浮山色。恩波仁兄法教,張爰。
    鈐印:大千、乙巳

    來源:
    直接得自畫家
    曾恩波(1915-1989)收藏,隨後由其子女繼承

    註:本幅寫於1965年,應是張大千於英國倫敦Grosvenor畫廊舉行個展前後時間,該展覽所呈現的畫作已是潑墨潑彩風格。而此作以潑墨法大片暈染山巖林木,山腰處略點數筆帶出,是畫家典型的技法表現。其時曾氏亦於倫敦中央社任職,故此應是在該時期所贈之作。

    Note: Dated 1965, Zhang Daqian likely executed this work before or after his solo exhibition at the Grosvenor Gallery, London, during which his oeuvre was already marked by the 'splashed-ink-and-colour' style. This is a technical tour de force of 'splashed ink' evoking the refreshing charm of mountains and trees. Abbreviated brushstrokes denoting the bridge, small huts and scholars are typical of Zhang Daqian's artistic representation. Eddie En Po Tseng worked in London at the Central News Agency's Europe Bureau during this period, suggesting that Zhang Daqian must have specially painted this work as a gift to him.
