威廉·傑拉德·賀夫卡《織工》1939 年作 粉彩 紙本
款識:Bali Jan 1939 WG Hofker(左上)

Literature:

Born in Amsterdam, Willem Gerard Hofker attended Rijksacademie voor Beeldende Kunsten (National Academy of Fine Arts), which was the home of Amsterdam Impressionism, an art movement in late 19th Century Holland. Artists from this school depict the everyday scenes of city life on the canvas with quick, rapid brushstrokes, a technique and philosophy that Hofker had brought over to his new life in Bali, where he lived with his wife Maria from 1938 to 1943.

This painting of a weaving girl appears to be a vision from a dream, as she is depicted with simmering dapples of light and shadow against an unadorned background, which attributes a timeless quality to her portrait. The sparse dabs of colours on the canvas cultivate a sense of ascetic beauty that evokes the viewer’s imagination of the life of the sitter. A portrait seeped in history and cultural significance, the painting exudes the austere refinement of a simpler time.

威廉·傑拉德·賀夫卡出生在阿姆斯特丹,畢業於荷蘭國家美術學院,那裡是19世紀末荷蘭藝術運動的起源地。這所學校里的藝術家都常用快速的筆觸在畫布上描述城市生活的日常場景,賀夫卡也以同樣藝術哲學和繪畫技巧描繪他在巴厘島的日常生活。從1938年他與妻子瑪麗亞在峇里島從1938年直生活至1943年。

這幅畫中的編織女孩似乎來自夢中的情境,朦朧的光影和陰影對照樸素的背景讓畫蒙上了朦朧的面紗,賦予畫面無窮無盡的想像。簡要的色彩營造出一種平庸之外的美感,窺探進畫中女子的情景。這幅畫蘊含了深厚的歷史和文化意義,是散發著歷盡世事後已久經典的藝術傑作。
