林風眠作品一輯,乃林氏杭州藝專的學生金明玉所珍藏。金明玉1931年出生於北京,父親金晉鏞是韓國獨立運動的先驅,畢業於明治大學,在東京同盟會草創時期即與孫中山建立了同壕友誼,為韓國獨立各地奔走而忘家,故金明玉的童年雖養尊處優,卻極少享受到父愛,以致日後林風眠對金明玉而言不僅有恩師的教導,更加之慈父的關懷。


四十年代末,金明玉高中畢業以全額獎學金考取杭州藝專,得以親炙林風眠,能歌善舞、活潑天真的金明玉很快便成為林風眠及其同僚最得意親近的學生。金明玉也在林風眠的鼓勵下,每日黎明即起,勤奮寫生。然而好景不常,1950年起, 藝術為政治服務的寫實主義成為欽定獨尊,而傳統國畫、現代主義則被全盤否定。林風眠在這場運動中,由於畫風「不合時宜」飽受同僚甚至學生的批判,年紀輕輕的金明玉卻憤然敢為老師鳴不平。1951年夏,心灰意冷的林風眠辭去教職,決定離開杭州,移居上海。幾番慎重考慮後,他將馬鞍山腳下自己親手設計的玉泉別墅並內中作品全權託付給金明玉母親,本輯五幅作品,由金家珍藏數十載,今始釋入市場。
