「梅景流芳」書畫專輯(編號3128-3135)

吳湖帆 曉雲碧嶂

設色紙本 立軸 一九三六年作

畫家署簽


簽書:湖帆自畫〈曉雲碧嶂圖〉。青綠。


款識:

曉雲碧嶂。李唐、倪迂皆從關仝得筆,可知峻嚴踈宕,本是一家眷屬,徒求形似,原非確論。丙子秋日,戲寫漫識,吳湖帆。

李唐鈎斫勢渾淪,迂老工夫不事渲;

一脈荊關南北合,白雲碧嶂兩無言。

景韓先生出余舊作屬題即正。戊寅秋,湖帆又書。


鈐印:「吳湖颿」、「東莊居士」、「待五百年後人論定」。

「梅潔樓」舊藏

香港蘇富比,二〇一八年十月,中國書畫拍賣,編號1442


上款:「景韓」即李景韓,浙江鎮海人,周湘雲外甥。上世紀二十至五十年代,任英商泰利洋行買辦,極受周湘雲信賴,其房地產業務,多委泰利承辦,上海青海路四十四號周氏宅邸,亦由李景韓主持修造。五十年代後,移居香港。李氏嗜藝術,與滬上諸多書畫家往來,富藏海派書畫,所見者多鈐「曾在李景韓處」。一九四三年,〈梅景畫笈〉第一輯刊行,收錄吳湖帆盛年精品五十幅,李景韓上款者占二,皆出青綠細筆,証其實力品味不俗。本幅外,尚有一九三八年〈秋林觀瀑〉,均具畫家是年重題,可知彼時二人往來尤密,後者應係畫家從自存佳作中撿贈李氏。


註:董其昌南北宗之論,影響後世深遠。吳湖帆尊奉畫學正脈,初自四王涉繪事,後於董其昌用功甚著,不僅寶藏董氏書畫豐贍,筆墨、理念亦遙接衣鉢,崇尚南宗秀潤恬淡之文人氣質。直至一九三四年,吳湖帆受故宮邀約,赴北平鑒定書畫。此行令其飽覽深宮秘藏,觀摩許多五代、宋元真跡,得以全面系統梳理不同風格之繪畫技法、脈絡,對北派山水體悟尤直觀深刻。遂衝破南北宗壁障,專注宋元,畫格遒上,別開生面。


一九三六年,乃吳湖帆藝術生涯之關鍵時點,以〈雲表奇峰〉為代表的數幅重要山水相繼問世,轟動畫壇,其海派領袖地位隨之確立,作品亦展現出成熟面貌,本幅即為其一。入眼處峻巖陡峭,松蓋如雲;放眼則雲水澹蕩,丘陵連綿,一望無際,高遠與平遠兼具,生氣蓬勃。前方塊壘方折,皴法縝密,松針蓊鬱綿厚,顯見李唐〈萬壑松風圖〉痕跡,但用筆刻意弱化剛硬,以配合整體秀潤之態;而遠山之平緩、折帶皴之運用,則屬倪瓚無疑。三六、三八年二次題跋,呼應畫面,論李唐、倪瓚之相通處,透過形貌,直指二者係同源於荊關。吳湖帆將對畫史之研究,融入創作,兼收并蓄,參合精神,抒寫己意,為其超凡之處。


李唐〈萬壑松風圖〉乃畫史名跡,歷代追摹者衆,吳湖帆亦勤力於此,〈曉雲碧嶂〉外,同年冬至所出〈萬壑響松風〉為又一例。吳氏指授梅景弟子摹古,李唐、倪瓚皆為必修課,繁複者見功力,出繁入簡,則殊不易。本幅將李唐、倪瓚共冶一爐,既有北派山水之整飭,又具倪瓚之逸氣,筆墨精謹,敷以沉净的石青、石綠,呈現「雅腴靈秀、清韻縝麗」之面貌,意境悠遠,獨樹一幟。壓角鈐「待五百年後人論定」,自得與自信兼具!
