註:「蘇州留園有一塊巨大的山牆,牆上佈滿了藤綫,年代久遠,藤本已粗如臂、腿,層層叠叠,交錯穿插,延伸到高遠處的藤綫則細如柳絲,柔如纖草。粗綫細綫在牆上相交又相離,纏綿悱惻。早春,遍體吐新芽,萬點青、黃佈滿了棕色的枝藤;深秋,殘紅錯落地點綴上、下、左、右,都似節拍的音符,共奏點、綫之曲。」

—吳冠中


吳冠中受留園山牆啟發,多年來孜孜探索「牆與藤」之關係,早期作品如〈牆上藤〉中,藤蔓伸展受制於白牆身段,後來乾脆消弭牆沿局限,長藤遂滿紙肆意奔馳,此亦畫家九十年代抽象經典〈春如綫〉、〈牆上秋色〉之創作理念。本幅高牆矮垣,上下割據,上方爬山虎於白牆游走,如靈蛇盤旋飛舞,縱橫交錯,粗枝剛勁虯曲,藤綫細如髮絲,新芽串葉糾葛纏綿,或棕綠,或青碧,星星點點的小花綻放其中,點、綫交織成流動的有機體,因不安受困白牆,遂如潮水越牆下瀉,或從石磚隙鑽出,早春之生機勢不可擋矣。畫家安排藤蔓掙脫白牆束縛,入侵畫面其他空間,可謂日後引整幅畫面作牆之濫觴!下方短牆坐鎮,磚塊大小不一,層叠互壓,牆腳石塊橫躺豎立,變形的幾何組合構成豐富的形式美,雖同為牆,風格卻迥然不同。全畫上輕下重,動靜相映,疏密互倚,諸般對比關係混融一體,錯亂中隱然生秩序,滿滿一紙,尺寸皆有故事,堪稱「工筆畫」矣!
