Event Details

香港大學在二零零三年創設饒宗頤學術館,是因為饒宗頤教授捐贈了他用過的超過三萬冊藏書(其中古籍善本約八百種);及從他數十年來創作的書、畫、文玩中,選取了具有代表性的作品近二百件/套,捐贈給香港大學。這些藝術作品不單只標誌著饒宗頤教授個人的創作歷程與成就,同時亦可以見到一位學者與藝術家,如何在學術與藝術之中,雙頭並進,學藝互益。

饒教授在他超過九十高齡時,依然在書法、繪畫上有篳路藍縷的開創。他的古文字書法、動力澎湃的行草、山水畫西北宗的畫法、創新的敦煌白描、與及氣勢磅礡的荷花等,都可以見到他在書畫兩者不拘成法、不拘所謂中西畫法之別的觀念,自由地驅使書畫工具與技法來創作。他的作品在近代藝術史上一定會佔重要的一頁。

現今的藝術評論家對饒教授的藝術創作都給以極高評價。因為他證實了中國傳統書畫藝術絕對是長流不息,是具有無限的生命力。香港大學饒宗頤學術館這批藏品,就是這一種生命力的明證。

When the Jao Tsung-I Petite Ecole of The University of Hong Kong was established in 2003, Professor Jao Tsung-i contributed two sets of donations, which can be regarded as the major portion of this academic institute. The contributions consist of over 30,000 book collections of Professor Jao’s, which includes hundreds kinds of wood board printed editions of the Ming and Qing dynasties. The other part of the contributions comprises his calligraphy, paintings and studio objects accomplished over the years.

Professor Jao selected his most representative works from those had done in the past decades. Moreover, he has consecutively donated his new art works as the collections of Jao Tsung-I Petite Ecole, with more than 200 items. These artworks not only symbolize Professor Jao’s artistic development and achievements, but we can also learn how a scholar artist reaches great attainments in both fields.

Professor Jao reveals his innovation ability in the process of art creation. After the year of 2000, Professor Jao still makes strenuous efforts to develop new directions in the realms of calligraphy and painting in his 90s. Not being limited by the regulations of painting and calligraphy as well as the boundary between Chinese and Western painting, he consummately wields calligraphy and painting instruments and techniques, which are presented through his ancient character calligraphy, forceful running-cursive script calligraphy, Northwestern School landscape painting style, pioneering Dunhuang sketch technique, and tremendous momentum in lotus paintings. He unquestionably plays an important role in contemporary art history.

Since ancient times, there have been few people excel in both academic and artistic fields. The most representative scholar artists are Su Shi of the Song dynasty and Fang Yizhi of the late Ming dynasty, and modern art critics consequently have highly estimation of Professor Jao’s artworks because he demonstrates that the stream of traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy is endless and of boundless vitality.

Undoubtedly, this collection of Jao Tsung-I Petite Ecole of The University of Hong Kong is a strong proof.
