西洋古典素描

「查茨沃斯莊園珍藏」第三集:達文西素描作品《麗達與天鵝》

「當代藝術家來到這裡,每每要求參觀西洋古典素描,在作品面前他們的喜悅難以筆墨形容。」德文郡公爵十二世說道。德文郡公爵收藏囊括逾三千件西洋古典素描,大多由首三代德文郡公爵蒐羅得來。德文郡公爵二世威廉·卡文迪什的貢獻尤為重要,在十八世紀初成功購入當時享負盛譽的一個私人收藏。現任公爵稱他「别具慧眼,性格好勝」。達文西的《麗達與天鵝》(1503–07年作)乃收藏中的稀世瑰寶之一,同時象徵著卡文迪什家族借展藏品的歷史。1938年,德文郡公爵十世收到請求,將《麗達與天鵝》借予在米蘭舉行的達文西作品大展。「他萬分不願,因為他知道戰爭即將爆發,不宜將畫運送至意大利。」現任公爵解釋道。最終他同意借展,後來在戰爭期間作品貯藏於意大利一座城堡的地窖,直至1946年或1947年才重返查茨沃斯莊園。這幅精緻的素描奇跡地逃過大難,畫面中央僅有一小圓點的損毀,猶如一枚「榮譽徽章」。更多詳情,敬請關注: WWW.SOTHEBYS.COM/CHATSWORTH(點擊視頻右下方選項以開啟字幕)
