    啟功 擬梅花盦主山水 水墨紙本 手卷 一九四一年作

    引首:
    筆駕雲濤生。啟功。

    款識:
    辛巳(1941)孟夏,擬梅花盦主法,元白居士啟功寫於簡靖堂。

    題跋:
    (一)春山如咲冬如睡,殘臘祁寒寫己難。妙手有功迴大化,生機無盡蘊層巒。縑留美玉脂堪比,墨惜精金秀可餐。歷世名圖看欲飽,河陽幽谷共奇觀。題山水圖一首。啟功。
    (二)燈火長廊目一時,畫船笛韻夜行遲。月波蕩漾流歌板,花氣迴環逼酒巵。人跡盡隨紅燭焰,客心常繫綠楊絲。如今西壓橋邊路,添得鏗然杖一枝。舊作一首。啟功。
    (三)占斷湖山美,林深偃月堂。行人虛指點,何處賈平章。攬古得句。啟功。

    鈐印:啟功之印(三鈐)、元白(三鈐)、生於壬子(三鈐)、啟功(二鈐)、元白(二鈐)、元白居士、啟功、珠申
