FINE 18TH TO 20TH CENTURY CHINESE PAINTINGS AND CALLIGRAPHY FROM THE COLLECTION OF TANYUAN SHANFANG
檀圓山房珍藏十八至二十世紀中國書畫
LOTS 837-886

The Tanyuan Shanfang collection of fifty paintings was formed between 1970s to 2000s. Having grown up overseas, the collector was first introduced to Chinese calligraphy in the late 1940s through a Chinese language program, where he grew fond of the art form and developed a deep interest in its long rich tradition and history. In the 1970s, his passion for Chinese calligraphy extended beyond his lectures and books when Mr. Zheng Zhenhuan of Hong Kong, a friend, educator, and connoisseur of Chinese calligraphy and paintings, introduced him to his circle of friends of Hong Kong renowned artists and collectors. Amongst them, of prominence was Mr. Dang Cangwu of Macau, a renowned dealer and connoisseur, who became instrumental in the formation of an extensive and diversified collection we see today.

檀圓山房主人生於海外,二戰後在中文學校接觸到書法,即為這一藝術形式的博大精深所折服。上世紀七十年代初結識港澳兩地書畫仝道,開始陸續購藏,與澳門知名畫商傳研樓鄧蒼梧氏交往最密,又屢於紐約之拍賣會投得心愛之作。四五十年間,孜孜不倦,漸次匯為可觀的收藏。此輯甄選其部分精品,書法自晚清名臣至新文化運動中堅,繪畫則南北兼蓄,以嶺南第三代領軍趙少昂早年精絕之作領銜,冀以呈現該藏家不拘一格、包容兼備的品味與眼光。

    蘇六朋指畫人物。

    款識:
    滿地苔錢,買斷雲煙,笑桃花流水落晴川。石樓高處,夜夜啼猿。看二更雲,三更月,四更天。細草如氈,獨枕空拳,與麋野鹿同眠。殘霞未散,淡霧沉綿。是晉時人,秦時洞,漢時仙。
    子虎仁兄詞長雅屬。怎道人六朋指頭。

    鈐印:臣六朋印、枕琴指頭

    上款:「子虎仁兄」應為李長榮。李長榮,字元烺,號子虎。廣東南海人,長於詩文書畫,為名詩人張維屏弟子,有《柳堂詩鈔》行世。李氏主持之柳堂修禊及雅集,乃當時粵東重要文人活動,蘇六朋曾多次應邀參與。據朱萬章《蘇六朋在廣州藝事考略》記,最為人津津樂道的一次修禊,乃道光二十五年(1845),李氏召集黃培芳、蘇六朋、杜游、鄧大林、李漢等聚於柳堂,蘇六朋並應主人所請,繪製〈柳堂修禊圖〉,然後出諸家題詩歌詠,成一時之盛。
