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:
    晦庵先生曰:中年以後為學,須要愛惜精神,恐忽有大事,無以應之。
    陽明先生曰:某向在長安馬上時,目光不敢過馬首。今羽橄交馳,賴有平日之養耳。
    師竹二兄年大人正捥。弟翁同龢。

    題跋:
    此幀為常熟翁師傳晚年精作也。其風華較之中年,稍有遜色。然謹嚴蒼勁,不屈精神,涽見紙素。敷浅者流,或以其僅有些微南園字樣,而指贋偽。以此幀而言,錢氏真不能望其肩項也。
    蒼梧六兄具寶之歟。乙未(1955)閏三月,羅叔重署。

    鈐印:
    (翁)同龢印、叔平
    (羅)叔重、三不以堂(裱邊)
    藏印:鄧蒼梧所藏

    註:裱邊題跋者羅叔重(1898-1968),名瑛、字叔重,號寒碧、騷霞等,廣東南海人。為澳門文化藝術史上頗具影響的書畫家、篆刻家。其書以自創的「黑老虎」書法聞名;篆刻則出入周秦、兩漢,尤以六朝文字入印,頗獲時譽。
