星洲私人收藏徐悲鴻精品(編號3096-3097)

徐悲鴻 (1895-1953)

雙吉平安


設色紙本 立軸 一九三九年作


款識:

培元先生雅教。悲鴻。己卯。


鈐印:「徐悲鴻」。


來源︰黃培元家屬收藏


註︰本幅乃畫家一九三九年寫奉黃培元,酬謝其襄助畫展之舉。取雌雄雙雞、細竹磐石入畫,以雙雞轉音「雙吉」、竹寄「平安」、磐石喻穩固,三者合之,寄寓闔府平安吉祥,家業穩若磐石之祝願。


畫中雙雞高低屹立石上,體態壯美,雄雞朱冠黃趾,項背羽毛以藤黃赭紅相敷,設色鮮亮,亟異於筆下常見之白項烏尾者,石間新篁以雙鈎寫出,碧翠猗猗,下方雌雞身披緇衣,通體烏黑,三者上下呼應,色彩對比亟強。畫幅高五尺,屬同類題材較長者,以其用色之豐,尺幅之鉅,非寫贈泛泛之交者,毋乃傾力精製!


星洲私人收藏徐悲鴻精品(編號3096-3097)


本輯出自新加坡戰前知名建築商黃培元 (1882-1968) 舊藏。黃氏原籍福建惠安,上世紀初南遷星洲,創設「黃培建築工程」,經營建築及包工業逾半世紀,素著盛譽,曾任建築公會評議員,歷年為政府承建亟夥,如中央警署、竹腳婦幼醫院、丁加機場飛機庫地基等。太平洋戰爭爆發,負命為陸軍部建廿七座炮彈庫及軍事設備,戰霾下仍戮力完工。勝利後,捐資振興桑梓教育,畢生熱心公益,亟得時譽。


一九三九年,徐悲鴻赴南洋辦籌賑畫展,黃培元仰其凌厲激揚之志節,多次斥巨資捐助,為酬答之,畫家為其寫油畫像,並精繪書畫為贈。黃氏矜賞其作,珍存秘篋,越八十載仍保完整,今方由家族後人釋出。另畫家為黃氏繪製油畫肖像於現代藝術日間拍賣釋出(編號761)。
