  • 吳冠中 園林一角 設色紙本 鏡框 

    款識:英美煙草公司惠存,吳冠中贈。
    鈐印:吳冠中印、八十年代

    註:一九八七年九月,英美煙草公司作為重要的贊助商,促成《吳冠中回顧展》於香港藝術中心成功舉辦。此乃吳冠中海外首次個展,對其贏得海外關注起了舉足輕重的作用。〈園林一角〉即當時為酬謝英美煙草公司所寫,一直懸掛於英美煙草公司香港辦公室,二〇〇五年,公司將此幅作為退休禮物贈予現藏家,以表彰他對公司的長久貢獻 。此作描繪江南園林一隅,乃畫家八十年代最喜入畫的題材之一。構圖新穎大膽,將奇石置於畫面中心,涼亭隱約在後,白墻黑瓦設為遠景,這巧妙安排展現了畫家對空間的靈活駕馭。他筆下的太湖奇石、池中游魚、白墻黛瓦,令觀者猶如置身於園林之中,流連忘返。
