註:「是故人尋燕子,尋童年,尋故鄉。我生長在楝樹港鄉下,一直到無錫去念中學時才離開故鄉,以後愈走愈遠,愈別愈久,終於也體會到『少小離家老大回』的人生感受……故鄉畢竟是美的,山色湖光秀,風土人情樸,當我讀到魯迅的〈故鄉〉時,立刻想起自己童年也有閏土那樣的伙伴……二十世紀六十年代起我不斷往紹興跑,紹興和宜興非常類似,但比宜興更入畫,離魯迅更近。……白牆黛瓦、小橋流水、湖泊池塘,水鄉水鄉,白亮亮的水鄉。黑、白、灰是江南主調,也是我自己作品銀灰主調的基石,我藝術道路的起步。」

—吳冠中


吳冠中自六十年代起創作「魯迅故鄉」系列,除了向文學家魯迅致敬,亦因應當時獨特的政治環境,毅然從人物繪畫轉投風景繪畫,奠下其江南人家造型初貌。本幅取方形構圖,穹蒼之下,紹興村落匍匐大地,沿貫穿水鄉的河流延伸天際。與一九七七年為魯迅博物館所寫之〈魯迅故鄉〉相比,可知本幅捨全景式構圖,改擷寫村莊一隅,集中呈現黑白塊面疏密之形式美,乃畫家八十年代潛心鑽研的課題,另幅一九八八年作〈紹興水鄉〉,創作手法即與本幅相若。畫中房舍鱗次櫛比,白牆與黑瓦銜接積叠,順應透視距離,輪廓分明之房舍壓縮為密集之黑塊面,漸次化為如立體派之抽象面貌。密不透風的佈局中,畫家精心安插人流如鰂的石板老街、河濱柳樹、巷口石橋等水鄉風物,平衡畫面壓逼感,亦緊握扣連母體具象之線索,堪作畫家處理大規模江南村莊構圖之最佳典範。所繪者,既為魯迅故鄉,更屬畫家理想之故鄉形象,已非單一畫題能概括之!
