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。

Footnotes

  • 程十髪 瀕湖問藥圖 設色紙本 橫批 一九七八年作

    款識:
    瀕湖問藥圖。
    歲在戊午(1978)仲秋之月,程十髪漫筆。

    鈐印:程潼、十髪、五湖四海為家

    註:程十髮出生於中醫世家,三代皆懸壺濟世,其父在松江開設中醫診所,又雅好藝術,對程十髮影響極大,故華佗、李時珍等古代名醫出現在他筆下,便不足為奇了。以李時珍為主角的〈瀕湖問藥圖〉尤為畫家所好,本幅寫成的同年,程十髮以一幅同題作品在上海科普畫展上獲獎。畫中的李時珍面目清癯、態度誠懇,他跋山涉水、遍尋草藥、又不恥下問的精神,寄託了畫家自身的理想和追求。
