    註:好的藝術家肯定也是美食家,此話用來形容大千最是恰如其分。因為好吃會吃,時令瓜果常常是大千信手拈來的題材。他在東京因為眼疾而食冬菇,便作「冬菇圖」,題「鮮美而廉,逐日食之,頗覺雙目漸瞭」,記為樂事。本冊蔬果花卉乃大千寫贈紅顏知己山田喜美子,大千好友莊嚴扉頁題「羣芳真色」,說得是畫中物,也是畫外人。

    大千與山田喜美子情事,近年隨著大千寫贈及二人往來書信陸續釋出市場,已漸為人所熟知。一九五三年,經日本裱畫店介紹,大千結識山田姑娘並聘其為秘書。山田懂畫,經大千訓練,並能說中國話與寫中國字。大千對山田疼愛有加,寫贈頗夥,且多經意之作。一九五四年繪雜畫冊餽予好友台靜農,冊中有「水仙」、「鱘魚」、「櫻桃芭蕉」,最後一開乃喜美子半身像,款題:「畫成既題署,侍兒謂尚餘一頁,興已闌,手亦倦,無暇構思,即對影為此,是耶?非耶?靜農何從而知之耶?」 無疑乃大千與山田你濃我濃之生動註腳。
