奉文堂珍藏中國書畫

Lots 201-219

繼2014年10月《古雅至臻──奉文堂藏中國古代陶瓷》專拍大獲成功之後,邦瀚斯中國書畫部本季幸獲所託,檢其舊藏十九件,匯成一輯,以饗仝好。奉文堂主人陳淑貞女士自幼雅好藝術,上世紀七、八十年代起,舉凡書畫、陶瓷、玉雕、文房清玩,皆悉力蒐求,逾仨載不倦,遂成大觀。二十世紀書畫家當中,奉文堂主尤鍾愛齊白石,本輯逾半乃齊氏佳構小品,最早紀年作品為1925年,最晚為五十年代初白石老人91歲所製,時間跨度近三十年。這三十年,正是白石衰年變法、自成一格、創作力鼎盛時期,如1929年寫於金絹之上的〈蕉林清夏〉六幅屏風(編號212)以及1938年寫贈胡佩衡的〈舍利函齋圖〉(編號211)可謂白石山水之典型。其餘舉凡拂塵、柴耙、漁具、筆硯、葵扇蓮蓬等,將日常平實之物件入畫,生趣盎然,看似信手拈來,實最能彰顯白石功力所在。

    註:1920年前後,經陳師曾引薦,胡佩衡結識了甫定居北京的齊白石。他對白石藝術極為推崇,兩人遂結為忘年之交。冷庵在琉璃廠開設豹文齋,不遺餘力地推介白石藝術,更於1928年和32年出版《齊白石畫冊》初集和第二集,子胡橐亦入白石門下。胡氏父子1959年編著出版的《齊白石畫法與欣賞》,為研究了解白石與其藝術提供了極有價值的第一手資料。冷庵得白石寫贈甚夥,後因故陸續散出,其中部分入藏北京炎黃藝術館。本幅輾轉流出胡家後,1993年,藏家攜畫作見訪於胡橐,得胡橐親筆題記曰「〈舍利函齋圖〉,乃白石師為先父所做,實屬精品」。另,中國美術館現藏白石同名畫作〈舍利函齋圖〉,款識述其圖源起,蓋張仁蠡(1900-1951,號范卿,南皮張之洞子)新得唐開耀二年之舍利函,精整完好,因書告白石,得白石為取齋名並作畫以記。構圖以簡勝繁,蒼厚老辣,或成圖後為冷庵所見,喜而索畫,因得白石再作本幅。
