Modern Muses, Enduring Icons of Beauty群芳爭妍:現代藝術大師的繆斯女神

Through the eyes of modern art masters, we look upon the muses who have been the source of their artistic inspiration. The women of Picasso’s life were the fulcrum of his genius, essential to his creative and intellectual processes. He painted Dora Maar when his new love Dora Maar had become a dominant presence, a love affair that was passionate and tumultuous.

This selection of paintings celebrates different muses of modern art – some alluring and seductive, some elegant and mysterious, each enduring icons of beauty. In Éternel Printemps, lovers locked in a maelstrom of passion, Rodin used for figure of the woman the highly sensual Torse d'Adèle, which was named after the model who posed for the sculptor. Renoir's voluptuous nude represents his ideal of soft, full figured feminity. Mai Trung Thu finds tranquility and sweet expression in the model of Lady at Balcony (La Fiancée), while Cheong Soo Pieng’s Bali Girl, Le Pho’s Jeune fille au chat blanc, Hendra Gunawan’s Jackfruit Seller all express a sense of a serene stillness.

這批畫作展示了現代藝術當中多位繆斯女神的不同面貌,當中有性感誘人的、也有典雅妍麗,以至神秘莫測的不同形象。羅丹的《永恆之春》刻劃戀人的熾熱,為此像擔任模特兒的阿黛爾也是羅丹名作《阿黛爾半身像》的主角。雷諾瓦的裸女畫像展現的他心目中柔美豐滿的女性形象。枚中栨 (梅忠恕)《陽台上的仕女(未婚妻)》氣韻靜謐甜美,而鍾泗濱的《峇里女子》、黎譜的《少女與白貓》以及及亨德拉·古拿溫的《賣菠蘿蜜》不約而同都帶有含蓄細膩的秀雅之氣。

"The artist absorbs what he sees in nature and refines it in his mind, and it is the power of the artist's imagination, his sensitivity and his inner character that are revealed on the canvas. This is where the concepts of Chinese painting and abstract painting come together in a very clear way." 「藝術家吸收了他在大自然所看見的,經過思考加以提煉,在畫布上流露出來的是藝術家的想像、感性和內在性格。在這裏,中國書畫和抽象畫的概念非常清晰地走在一起。」
Chu Teh-Chun 朱德群
