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。

    款識:
    柳子厚詩,在陶淵明後,韋蘇州前,退之豪放奇險則過之,而溫麗靖深,則不及。所貴乎枯澹者,謂其外枯而中膏,似澹而實美,子厚、淵明是也。若中邊皆枯澹,亦何足道。佛云:如人食蜜,中邊皆甜。食五味,知其甘苦者,皆是能分別其中邊者,百無一二也。黃魯直作此詞,清麗妍新,問其得意處,自言:以水光山色,替卻玉肌花兒。此乃真得漁父家風也。然出新婦磯,又入女兒浦,此漁父無乃大瀾浪乎?
    雲敦中丞大人正捥。柘林董誥。

    鈐印:臣董誥印、柘林
