    註: 王翬,字石谷,號耕煙散人,烏目山人,晚號清暉老人,江蘇常熟人。清初「四王」之一,有「畫聖」之譽。早年師從張珂,弱冠得王鑑賞識,收為弟子,又引薦給王時敏,遍臨所見宋元名跡,畫藝大進,技巧之精熟為清代第一。張庚《國朝畫徵錄》論曰「畫有南北宗,至石谷而合焉」,乃後世公認「集大成者」。

    傳世王翬臨營丘作品名件頗多,如《倣李成雪霽圖》、《倣李營丘江干七樹圖》及《倣李營丘仙岩樓觀圖》,此三件分別藏於紐約大都會博物館、臺北故宮及天津博物館。王翬摯友惲壽平曾題其畫《仿李營丘寒林落月圖》軸云,「唐以前無寒林,自李營丘,范華原始盡其法,烏目山人此幀,畫樹師營丘,沙汀石骨用李晞古。筆趣清潤,兼六如居士,蓋所謂脫盡縱橫習氣,非強事點染者, 所能彷彿也」。

    此軸《營丘雪圖》,款署丙寅(1686),王翬時年五十五。全幅採「高遠」式構圖,承「北宗」畫法而融「南」「北」於一爐。山石湖亭、密林雪山,細意點染,壯闊清曠,得靜謐高寒之致 。無疑為其倣營丘又一佳作。

    王時敏在《石谷畫卷跋》中對石谷臨古技巧頗為稱許:「凡唐宋元名家,無不摹仿逼肖,偶一點染,展卷即古色蒼然。毋論位置蹊徑,宛然古人,而筆墨神韻,一一奪真。且倣某家全是某家,不雜一他筆,使非題款,雖善鑒者不能辨」;又有跋其《雪圖長卷》云「兼用右丞營丘法,其行筆佈置,瑰麗高寒,各極其致,宛然天造地設,不能增減一筆。......蓋其學富力深,遂與俱化,心思所至,左右逢源」。以此對照本軸《營丘雪圖》,故可知西盧老人所跋,亦全非溢美之言。

    此軸曾為收藏大家湖北荊門「蒙泉書屋」王文心(1888-1974)、貴州袁愚泉、海寧錢鏡塘(1907-1983)以及浙江嘉善陆平恕(1917-1999)先後遞藏 。
