展覽及著錄:印度新德里,全印美術會,〈大千畫展〉,一九五○年一月十六至十七日,並刊於展覽目錄,展品編號11,圖版1


註:一九四九年底,張大千在時任駐印度大使羅家倫安排下,偕夫人徐雯波自香港赴印,籌備新德里畫展事宜。展覽於翌年一月舉行,展品包括畫家所臨摹之敦煌壁畫多幀,本幅即其一。


根據展覽目錄,本幅取材自243號窟頂平棋圖案,即敦煌研究院編訂257號窟,乃北魏時期所開鑿,以「九色鹿本生故事」壁畫聞名。石窟結合中外之建築風格,內室採源自印度之中心塔柱結構,方柱矗立,四面開龕,上接窟頂,復於天花繞以漢式平棋裝飾圖案。平棋,即以四木相交成井,方井間排列組合,構成棋格狀,原見於中式宮殿建築。


一九四一至四三年間,張大千遠赴敦煌考察,潛心鑽研石窟藝術,朝夕臨摹壁畫,又作文字記錄。他於〈漠高窟記〉中即提及243號窟「窟頂大半己毀,南首、尚有一方格,內畫綠水浮萍,四人裸泳其中」。


本幅邊飾為散點小花,下層岔角飾以火焰紋,中央見一碧藍蓮池,浮萍飄漾其中,呈北朝裝飾風格。四位裸身天人舒展雙臂,在水中繞蓮花暢泳。窟中平棋一角現已損毀,色彩漸褪,昔日全貌不復見,大千憑想像填補缺陷,還原絢麗之色。然細察下,畫中天人臉頰飽滿,眉目細長,朱唇纖小,帶有唐代天女形象特色,異於窟中造形較為樸拙者,可見畫家參合己意,以豐富構圖,強調視覺效果。
