香港,一畫廊


「吳冠中先生在八、九十年代畫黃土高原,一眼望去,溝壑縱橫像老虎斑紋,先生說可稱之為老虎高原;後來先生帶着小孫孫去動物園觀察虎群,隨後陸續創作了四件八平呎《老虎》,多經我手流傳到收藏家手中。


後來一直有人追着我要《老虎》,我對先生說能否為我再畫一件非賣品的《老虎》,我拿去製作版畫,以版畫滿足愛好者需求。於是先生又畫了一件《老虎》,並做成版畫,由先生逐一簽名,簽注版號共60件。


若干年後,我耐不住老友一再追求,想擁有先生一件老虎作品。我如實轉告給先生。先生笑語:「小方,當初可是你說的,這一件原作是非賣品呵!」


後來,這位老友終於如願所償。


幾年前在一場香港拍賣中,這件吳冠中的八平呎彩墨老虎以港幣一千三百多萬元成交。」
