FINE CHINESE PAINTINGS FROM THE ESTATE OF MR. QUEK KIOK LEE
郭克禮舊藏中國古代及近現代書畫
LOTS 233-242

郭克禮先生(1920-2018)乃新加坡資深收藏家。對傳統藝術至為熱忱,自上世紀六十年代起,廣事搜求,書畫、瓷器、青銅器、文房,咸有涉獵。並潛心鑽研,匯成兩厚本收藏筆記,上千條眉批腳註,對所購藏品一一分析、斷代進行整理研究。作為東南亞陶瓷學會創辦人之一,郭氏於一九九四年受邀出任新加坡國立大學博物館中國藝術館學術顧問。期間他廣結藝友,切磋藝事,樂此不疲,至直退休。
本輯古代及近現代書畫十件佳作,以黃君璧〈谿亭觀瀑〉(拍品編號239)最為鴻篇巨製,六尺整紙橫幅寫百丈飛瀑,雲氣蒸騰,氣勢磅礴,乃君翁最擅長者。古代部分,方薰為「知不足齋」主人鮑廷博所作〈卜居圖〉(拍品編號小241),佈局疏密有致,筆雅意幽,洵屬難得佳作。
另外,郭氏珍藏尚有三十三件於本季網拍中呈現,其中日本二玄社七、八十年代複製台北故宮名跡如五代〈秋林群鹿圖〉、范寬〈谿山行旅圖〉、文同〈墨竹圖〉等共十五件(附證書),無疑是欣賞、學習、研究中國古代書畫的最佳資料。
