    張大千 折柳集 設色紙本 冊頁十四開 一九五五年作

    款識:
    (一)折柳。蜀人張大千爰。
    (三)篷窗恰受夕陽明,楊柳梨花半月程。老去不知寒食近,一篙煙水載春行。方岳《清明日舟次吳門》。
    (五)漁浦山邊白鷺飛,西興渡口夕陽微。等閑更上層樓望,貪看江潮不肯歸。俞桂《江頭》。
    (七)寒水一瓶春數枝,清香不減小溪時。橫斜竹底無人見,莫與微雲淡月知。張道洽《瓶梅》。
    (九)萬蕊千葩染似紅,停杯無語恨東風。薄寒且為花愁惱,何況開時值雨中。劉克庄《海棠》。
    (十一)絕頂遙知有隱君,餐芝種術鹿為群。多應午竈茶煙起,山下看來是白雲。劉克庄《西山》。
    (十二)乙未(1955)閏三月,寫宋人吟詠六冊贈順華世講。
    (十三)華館相望接使星,長淮南北已休兵。便須買酒催行樂,更覓何年是太平。吳則禮絕句。
    (十四)順華世仁兄同客三巴一年,頃將負笈北美,無以為別,案頭有千首宋人絕句,雜取六絕寫此。吳則禮云「更覓何時是太平」,良可興感也。乙未(1955)閏三月,大千居士爰。

    張大千弟子李順華珍藏

    上款:「順華」即李龐,又名順華。上海人。其父李凌雲,自幼隨父從事古玩生意,與張善孖、大千兄弟皆為莫逆。一九五三年,李順華遠赴南美拜入大風堂門下,執弟子禮。他與妻子陳雪梅在巴西摩詰八德園隨侍大千一年有餘,建立了深厚的感情。一九五五年,李順華轉赴美國與家人團聚,仍不斷與大千保持聯繫。大千每次赴美舉辦畫展,李順華均代為處理行程及展覽諸事,照顧得盡心盡意。

    註:「此夜曲中聞折柳,何人不起故園情」,小冊定名「折柳」,是大千為李順華的餞行之作。冊頁經折式裝潢,計十四頁,緩緩展開,三幅山水小景款款呈現,另有折枝海棠,奇石瓶花並自畫小像各一。穿插其中的是大千應景題寫的宋人詞句,方岳《清明日舟次吳門》、俞桂《江頭》、張道洽《瓶梅》、劉克莊《西山》、《海棠》,與畫面相映成趣,一冊集山水、人物、花卉、詩書,且開開精絕,足見大千對這個弟子之疼愛,其別情依依俱匯於筆端。

    上世紀五十年代,張大千遠赴南美,開始旅居生涯。在巴西聖保羅郊區的摩詰城,他覓得一片寶地,頗類成都平原,且種滿柿樹與玫瑰,隨即買下,開路挖湖,親自設計修建成「八德園」。時值李順華中學畢業,他接受父親李凌雲的建議,去往摩詰拜大千為師,入住「八德園」。李凌雲和大千、善孖兄弟為莫逆,李順華自與大千亦師徒亦父子,兩家的情誼在之後巴西與美國間的不斷往來中沈澱。

    八德園雖座落於風情迥異的南美,然一花一木,一湖一亭,卻全按中式園林營造,大千「治園如作畫,不肯輕下一筆」,園中花草樹木「必故國所有者植之」。八德園中,不但遍植海外移來的奇花異草,還飼養了猿、鶴、雉雞、孔雀等故國珍禽異獸。苦心營造的八德園成為大千棲息的世外桃源,也成為他藝術靈感的源泉。「外師造化、中得心源」,大千在此獲得了求變的靈感,令大千享譽世界的潑墨風格便成於八德園,而本冊「折柳集」中,已可見些許端倪。亭臺樓閣、柳岸舟船都是舊時模樣,但點染皴擦已漸去傳統,以赭石、花青為主要基調,大膽鋪陳著色。構圖佈局注重整體氛圍的把握,咫尺畫面,意藴千里。
