heading formosa series

 
A series of water colours on street scenes and landscapes was produced from 1957 to 1961 when the artist pursued his fine art studies at the National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, Taiwan. Being fascinated and inspired by the works of great masters like Gauguin, Mattisse and other Post-Impressionist artists, he employed the spontaneous and gestural approach to capture the colourful Taipei street scenes and the serene landscape of country side and central highland of Taiwan. Gestural brush strokes and spontaneous application of water colours is his hall marks during this period.
这一系列描绘街景和风景的水彩作品是锺金钩从 1957 至 1961 在台湾师范大学深造时所创作的。由于深受高更和马提斯和其他印象大师的影响,故用色大胆豪迈。笔调轻松而不拘束。他以轻松的笔触和鲜明的色彩,描绘了台北的大街大街小巷,山地景色和宝岛风情。自发性的敷色和轻松的笔调是这一系列的特点。
