    于非闇 扁豆蜻蜓 設色紙本 立軸 一九二九年作

    款識:
    今夏搜求扁豆十餘種,庭前階下植之殆遍。因闢豆花之館以寵之,繁花似錦,長英累累若穗。每當夕陽既下,即其下而與小兒輩話短長,頗亦有豆棚瓜架之樂焉。己巳(1929)臘月,寫於華萼樓,即奉誠之先生雅鑒,于照並記。

    鈐印:非盦

    來源:
    原藏家於一九六八年至一九七〇年間以人民幣三十五元購自北京文物商店,並由家屬珍藏

    註:「我的創作方法,自始即是利用作文作詩的方法從內容出發,首先在構思上要創立新意。對遺產要『取法乎上』,構圖、用筆、著色等的要求是不落老套,獨闢蹊徑」。
    非厂先生自幼喜歡蒔花養鳥,又在祖父與父親的指導下修讀詩文書畫。一九一二年考入北京師範學校,課餘拜以畫蟈蟈、菊花出名的王潤暄為師,兩三年間學會了製作顏料、養花和鬥蟋蟀。一九二六年起他任職於《晨報》文藝副刊,以「非闇漫墨」為題在京津滬知名報刊上撰寫系列文章,是當時知名的專欄作家。越兩年,又出版《都門釣魚記》、《都門藝蘭記》和《都門豢鴿記》三本專著。或因勤於筆耕,非厂先生二十年代傳世作品殊為稀見。
    本幅作於己巳(1929)臘月,以水墨小寫意寫庭前扁豆秧開扁豆花,豆秧纏繞間,一隻嫣紅的蜻蜓振翅起舞,復以「豆棚瓜架之樂」點題,畫中有情,堪比「踏花歸去馬蹄香」,含不盡之意於畫外。以格調論,則勝其後之工筆富麗遠矣。
