  • 張大千 高士觀龍圖、行書詩〈龍潭山〉 設色、水墨灑金紙本 成扇 一九三七年作

    款識:
    介堪仁兄法家屬教,丁丑(1937)夏七月,蜀郡大千居士張爰。
    (另面)
    (行書黃溍〈龍潭山〉,詳文不錄)丁丑(1937)夏七月,書元人句,似介堪先生法家正之,大千張爰。

    鈐印:張爰之印、大千、張爰私印、大千居士、蜀客

    上款:「介堪」即方介堪(1901-1987),原名文榘,後更名岩,字介堪,以字行,齋名玉篆樓。浙江永嘉(今溫州)人。一九二〇年,師從金石家謝磊明治印,謝氏家富收藏,方介堪得以廣覽印譜。一九二六年,方氏赴滬,又拜入趙叔孺門下,並進入西泠印社工作。同年於曾熙處結識張大千。因愛好相投,漸成莫逆。方氏一生治印逾兩萬方,以仿秦漢玉印和鳥蟲篆最為人稱道,為大千鐫刻亦不下五百方,常見鈐印如「老棄敦煌」、「總是玉關情」、「三千大千」皆出方氏鐵筆。

    一九三六年冬,方介堪到北平,客居於大千頤和園住所。翌年二月,與大千、于非闇在中山公園先後舉辦兩次金石書畫聯展。三月,同赴南京參加全國美術展覽評審工作,隨後方介堪、張大千、于非闇、謝稚柳、黃君璧一行五人,同遊雁蕩山,飽覽雁蕩美景,流連忘返於「雁蕩三絕」的靈峰、靈巖和大龍湫。「雁蕩三絕」中又以大龍湫瀑布最為奪人,大千曾倚詞曰:「岩翠積,映水渟泓深碧。中有蟄龍藏不得,迅雷驚海立。花草化雲狼籍,界破遙空一擲。檻外夕陽無氣力,斷雲歸尚濕。」

    從此,靈岩、靈峰、大龍湫便時時入畫。而本幅構圖卻特為獨出心裁,以白描青綠於泥金扇箋上寫三高士,仰首望天,天際雲霧繚繞,一條玄色神龍,隱約於雲霧間,見首而不見尾。如此滿幅構圖,竟以不及一尺之成扇繪出,畫家構思之奇,令人服膺。本幅署年丁丑(1937)夏七月,乃西曆八月六日至九月四月間,正是日軍全面侵華之始,故都淪陷,方介堪彼時受聘於故宮博物院,直至九月方喬裝改扮逃出北平。大千則因名氣太大,遭日軍變相軟禁,不得時時與之周旋,而畫筆卻未曾稍歇,畫家創作力之旺盛,及異於常人之定力,真不愧是「五百年來一大千」。

    註:扇骨為湘妃竹骨
