FINE CHINESE PAINTINGS FROM ZUIMOXUAN COLLECTION
醉墨軒珍藏中國書畫
LOTS 916-923

醉墨軒主人,本業懸壺,行醫之餘,雅好藝術。上世紀九十年代初於一次雅集中結識劉丹,喜其彬彬有禮之傳統文人風度,自此定交,不覺已逾四分之一世紀。因此機緣,醉墨軒主人重燃收藏中國藝術之熱情,與劉丹常相往還,切磋藝事,並得畫家相贈甚夥。本輯四幅劉丹作品,其中〈明月峽硯山圖〉(拍品編號916)、〈天籟石圖〉(拍品編號917)及〈勺園石圖〉(拍品編號918),乃畫家將文人賞石入畫之肇始,其精微與意趣,令人沈醉;〈黃山奇峰〉(拍品編號919),可見畫家傳統技法之嫻熟。本輯中尚有鄭板橋鉅幅〈竹石圖〉(拍品編號923)與金農〈明月梅花圖〉(拍品編號922),乃醉墨軒主人承自其父,〈竹石圖〉集「詩」、「書」、「畫」於一體,乃板橋畫之經典。

  • 鄭燮 竹石圖 水墨紙本 鏡框

    款識:
    二十年前載酒瓶,東風倚醉竹西亭。而今再種揚州竹,依舊淮南一片青。
    板橋鄭燮。

    鈐印:鄭燮印、七品官耳、丙辰進士
    藏印:養性廬珍藏章、唐子西安審藏、雲溪秘翫

    註:乾隆十八年(1753),因為民請賑而忤大吏,鄭板橋憤而辭官,歸老田園,結束十年官宦生涯,返回揚州,重操舊業,以賣畫維生。回首前塵,他感慨萬分,初返揚州所作第一幅竹石圖上,他寫道「二十年前載酒瓶,東風倚醉竹西亭。而今再種揚州竹,依舊淮南一片青。」這闕飽含人生冷暖、五味塵雜的詩句亦題於本幅〈竹石圖〉,與疏落有致的竹叢和勁拔傲立的孤石兩相呼應,板橋豁達直率、不為俗染的純真性情呼之欲出。

    鄭燮一生愛竹,喜其彎而不折,折而不斷,柔中有剛的個性。竹亦象徵君子,正直、堅韌,「因茲秉得堅剛性,歷盡東風瘦不斜」,「咬定青山不放鬆,立根原在破岩中」都是鄭燮詠竹的名句。〈竹石圖〉以竹自喻,以詩抒懷遣興,又得其獨特的「六分半書」陪襯,可謂文人畫「詩」、「書」、「畫」一體之楷範。

    本幅〈竹石圖〉,尺幅巨大,筆墨層次豐富,氣勢渾然。兩叢主竹高大挺拔,次幹依石而生,枝葉繁密,交相間錯,向背伏仰各具姿態。竹葉以深墨為面,淡墨為背。用筆上,板橋打破常用「介」式撇劃之藩籬,孤石皴擦亦可見書法用筆。整幅作品,以「眼中之竹」抒寫「胸中之逸氣」,意趣盎然,耐人品味。
