Footnotes

  • 陸儼少 松石梅花圖 紙本設色 立軸裝裱 一九七八年作

    Lu Yanshao was a painter who struck a balance in his work between the meticulous skill of the orthodox 'Four Wangs' of the Qing dynasty and the building of spontaneous brush strokes. In 1927, Lu Yanshao studied poetry and calligraphy with Wang Tongyu, and then painting with the Shanghai painter Feng Chaoran. In 1938, Lu held his first exhibition. In 1955 he began to teach at the Chinese Painting Academy in Shanghai. The present lot has the following inscription:

    '疏枝橫玉瘦,小萼點珠光。一朵忽先變,百花皆後香。陳亮梅花詩。一九七八年八月,陸儼少畫。'

    Which may be translated as:

    'The sparse branches like slender jade, the little blossoms like lustrous pearls; A flower suddenly transforms, the myriad flowers follow in fragrance. Chen Liang's Poem on the Plum Blossom. Eighth month of 1978, painted by Lu Yanshao.

    Seals: Lu, Yanshao, Jiading, Yanshao Wuyang
    鈐印:陸、儼少、嘉定、儼少無恙
