  • 黃山壽 長生故事圖 設色絹本 手卷 一九〇二年作

    款識:
    壬寅(1902)春二月,鶴溪外史黃山壽。

    鈐印:勗初父

    註:黃山壽,原名曜,字勗初,號旭道人、鶴溪外史,晚號旭遲老人。江蘇武進(今常州)人。出生書香世家,自幼嗜畫,遊遍粵贛寧津等地,結識畫師名士,切磋技藝,名動京城,因被招入內廷,官直隸同知。

    黃山壽擅青綠山水、花鳥、人物、走獸,無一不精。一九〇〇年遷居海上,鬻畫為生。與海派諸家頗有往來、並參與海上題襟館金石書畫會。本卷〈長生故事圖〉,長逾八米半,乃黃氏罕見之鉅作。畫面施以青綠,樹石樓臺經營巧妙;人物神情動態,栩然若生;飛禽走獸,莫不狀物寫神,直得機樞。最難得設色艷而不俗,濃而不腴,在黃氏作品中極為稀見。晚清鑑賞家張鳴珂,富收藏,平生好與畫家遊,他的《寒松閣談藝瑣錄》將黃山壽與改琦、任熊鼎足而三,認為其畫「古雅妍秀,玉壺、渭長後所僅見也。」
