个人履历

14岁时,赵无极进入杭州艺术专科学校,面对机械化的写实主义教育,赵无极却背道而驰,力图捕捉构图的"理"与"力",抛弃情节性,以求主题的统一。
1941年赵无极留校任教,在重庆举办首次个人画展。
1947年在上海举办个人画展,1948年移居法国。
1949年5月,克勒兹画廊举办赵无极在巴黎的首次个人画展。
1953-1954年他在法国和其它国家(伯尔尼、日内瓦、罗马、米兰、慕尼墨、纽约……)多次举办展览。
赵无极(),旅法画家。赵无极1921年生于北平一书香世家。其家族渊源久远,族谱可直溯北宋皇室燕王家族。赵无极自小即天资聪颖、对文学、中外历史极感兴趣。他的家人,尤其是他的父亲和叔父,对绘画艺术都十分重视。他的父亲常不厌其烦地从美学及技巧的观点向子女解释一幅作品的伪劣,他的叔父则经常从巴黎带回一些仿制名画的明信片送给赵无极。在一个知识份子家庭中,大家都对绘画艺术倍感兴趣与好奇,他便是在这种环境下激发起成为画家的抱负。
1935年14岁时,他入杭州美专就读,六年之中,由素描石膏像、素描模特儿到画油画,其中也学习国画临摹、画法理论及西洋艺术等课程。他的早期作品主要以塞尚、马蒂斯、毕加索为师,画风比较接近西方印象派。也就是人们所谓的" 具象"时期。 1941年,赵无极举行首次个展,但他不满意明清以降的传统中国画。他盼望有一种更令他满意的训练。于是他在1948年与第一任妻子谢景兰前往巴黎。在巴黎的日子里,他结识了许多画家,如拉吉、哈同、布兰姆等人,与当时的巴黎塞尔努奇美术馆长艾利塞夫熟悉,与诗人米修结为莫逆,而他与第三任妻子梵思娃也在巴黎结识。
绘画在巴黎获得全面开展,1949年5月即在克滋画廊举办首次个展。他一面作画、一面思索,西方绘画发亦已达到一个必须突破的关口,于是他由克利的画中得到启示,一跃而入抽象的世界。
他继续探索绘画的可能性,而在中国水墨的渲染方式及空间观念中得到认识,将他的绘画带到另一个阶段。之后,他的画以色彩和空间分配,领着观者进入一个似无形又有形的无限世界。
赵无极从塞尚、毕加索过渡到克利,此时艺术也从架构一个完整的世界过渡到随机创作的阶段。至此,观众已无法直接从视觉形象来定义作品的内涵,1952年的作品"静物",即是此类转型作品的典范。画面中随意置放一些干树枝及杂物,造型奇特且充满荒凉、神秘的气 氛。对艺术家而言,静物是色彩与符号,在一定光线下,配上各种冷暖色调的合,他摆脱了具象画风,从分解主观的外表,使客观的形体以简单的形式出现。 1958年的作品"云"之后,赵无极的作品不再有标题,他仅在画布背面注明创作日期。
他六七十年代的作品,逐渐摆脱一切法则,恣意地挥洒他的自由,以各种创新组合的方式去表达内在的需求与感受。
赵无极在其80年代以后的作品,随着年龄及阅历的增长,注入了较多的温情与灵逸。激情与对立则逐渐溶进云彩或水气中,1986年的重要作品"向马谛斯致敬",人们可以发现他的改变,他较注重画面的调和,色彩更为流畅。如果说文字符号是他们创作的里程碑,则色彩的运用则扩张了艺术家的绘画语言。
一直到今天,年届90多的赵无极仍孜孜不倦地创作,他曾说:"我不怕老去,也不怕死亡,只要我还能拿画笔、涂颜料,我就一无所惧,我只希望能有足够的时间完成手上的画,要比上一幅更大胆、更自由。

创作历程

早期创作
赵无极1921年生于北平,成长于南通,学画于杭州,从艺于重庆和上海;1948年定居巴黎,1964年入籍法国。创作以人物和风景为主的具象油画。
自1954年起,他的绘画转入抽象,浮动于虚无的空间和变幻的色彩之中。以后,符号逐渐解散、消失,画面为自由的笔触和大片的颜色所代替。
50年代后
50年代后其创作可分为两个阶段。第一阶段是六十年代和七十年代早期。作品多以黑、褐等暗色为基调,笔触激烈,充满力度,画面极富运动感,七十年代中期以后,赵无极绘画进入另一阶段,其油画技巧日臻娴熟,色彩变得艳丽明亮,画面更侧重对空间和光线的追求,蕴含天地水火等种种大自然的要素,更具有风景的意味,气氛越来越平静。
1959年后,他的作品进一步摆脱具像性、描写性和情节性,更直率地表现精神和情感。他喜将大幅画布铺于地面作画,在无拘无束中尽情挥洒。赵无极深受中国文化熏陶,作品始终洋溢着东方气息,讲究气韵。
80年代后
80年代后正值赵无极的艺术家国际名声、美术地位再攀巅峰的年代。在此期间其创作随心自如,无论用色与下笔均敏锐、坚定和自信。同期的精彩巨作为《25.06.86桃花源》,画中悬浮的葡萄紫和深海的湛蓝层层相间,如烟的灰白色调子制造出宛如瀑布湍流般的景象。迷茫的灰白和钴蓝、矿石褐色透过对比表现出来,并不断地向彼此渗透、扩张,横生的气韵流动其间;艺术家下笔的力道时轻时重,将观者引入一个无尽的空间,想象得以飞驰。三涧直式构图极为特殊,以中国水墨画的垂直构图为蓝本,别具意义。作品完好保存于欧洲私人收藏之手,在2012年苏富比春拍会上展露,估价1,800万至2,800万港元。
90年代后
进入九十年代,赵无极的绘画更是炉火纯青,一方面,更显物象影响,如《90年10月25日》具月光水波之象,《96年2月6日》呈岗峦林木之形;另一方面,却又化入象外之象,进一步体现中国哲学所特有的天人合一,虚静忘我的精神境界。
2002年12月,赵无极当选法兰西学院艺术院终身院士。赵无极曾获法国荣誉勋位团第三级勋章、国家勋位团第三级勋章、艺术文学勋位团一级勋章、巴黎市荣誉奖章、日本帝国艺术大奖等。

作品风格

无极先生早期酷爱意大利、荷兰和法国等古典绘画风格,深受毕加索、马蒂斯和克利等西方现代派艺术大师影响,在力求"不复制自然而再现自然"的创作中,他经过了多次自我否定的痛苦历程,"遵规守矩不是创作"。他在回忆创作一生时曾表述,面对前一日的画幅作品,他在不肯乖乖顺从其意志的色彩和空间里挥笔,并在与绘画日复一日的"争斗"中得到莫大快乐,尽管也曾气馁和疲倦。赵无极不愧为一位潜心创作的艺术大家。除绘画外,他对别的事情看得很淡。问到一些具体事情时,他总是说,这需要问夫人弗朗索瓦兹。
赵先生认为,画家要用画来说话,其一直坚持"画家说得越少越好"。好的艺术作品必须要与观众进行心灵沟通,由世人评说。其在谈笑中介绍道,他一生致力于绘画--心中的绘画,并在不断创作中得到乐趣。他每天仍坚持四五个小时的创作,但为了保持体力并做到能在画架上爬上爬下,他每周在教练的指导下坚持打高尔夫球。据其年已花甲的夫人弗朗索瓦兹介绍,赵先生每年还经常到位于枫丹白露的乡村别墅挥笔作画,更大的画室里存放了好多已完成的画幅,其中包括曾专门为夫人而激情创作的题为《红》的作品。

艺术评论

赵无极先生从50年代在巴黎画坛崭头露角开始,就一直持续地保持着在国际艺术界知名的记录,他享有了国际艺术界给予他的许多荣誉和尊敬,也是中国艺术的光荣。
赵无极先生早年在国立杭州艺专学习时,受到林风眠的指教。他向林风眠学到的不是具体的绘画技巧,而是林风眠敢于创新、追求艺术自由境界的精神。从他早期的作品便可以看出,他是一位有着天赋素质的画家,在作品中无遮无拦地表现出自己的感觉,不受学院派写实技巧的束缚,而且怀着对自由抒发胸臆的梦想。
也就因为怀着艺术的梦想,他走向巴黎。后来的实际证明,他的性情和法兰西文化几乎有着天然的亲和关系,在那块土地上得以顺畅的发展。他的艺术锋芒从来就是咄咄逼人的,这与战后欧洲画坛重新复苏的探险热潮十分吻合;他的艺术智慧又是充沛深厚的,这使他能在几十年里不断推进和完善自己的风格,每个阶段都有新的境界;他的艺术上充满感性的,这与法国艺术整体中那种热烈与典雅的趣味切合相投。法国人首先在感觉上接受了他的艺术,而整个西方画坛则从艺术史的逻辑中承认了他的艺术。
赵无极先生在海外迎对的是西方抽象绘画大潮,他从表现性的具象绘画开始,发展成符号化的意象绘画,再进而发展成表现性的抽象绘画,在画风确立的过程中,他的艺术境界也愈发显得扩大。西方抽象绘画做的是画布上的形式营构,赵无极先生则从关于自然的憧憬与感受中上升为抽象语言,这就拉开了与西方抽象绘画的距离。他的盛期作品是一个完全抽象的形式世界,但叠印出一个充满生命律动的自然世界,让人生发许多投射了审美联想的幻觉,从画中看到变化的广袤自然。这是以东方传统为根基的抽象形态绘画,是中西艺术在精神上的交融。

人物
在巴黎靠画画谋生很难? 他打破了这个"不可能"
1920年,赵无极生于北京,15岁时,他进入杭州艺专学习。该学校由法国归来的林风眠掌门,赵无极的老师是吴大羽和潘天寿。1964年,定居巴黎16年后,赵无极加入法国籍,不仅打破老师林风眠"在巴黎靠画画谋生几乎不可能"的说法,还在欧洲画坛占有一席之地。在《绘画是我的生命》中,他写道:"如果说,一个人一生中必须做些让自己发狂的事,那么绘画便是我的全部生命,也是我终生去追寻的惟一凭借……虽然我加入了法国籍,但我骨子里的东西还是中国人的。"他曾表示,"我绘画的源泉来自中国。"
趣事
毕加索不见儿子 但是挂念赵无极
赵无极与毕加索、张大千等名家都是挚友。到法国后,让其惊喜的是,他在法国南部的画室居然一度毗邻毕加索的画室。已届八旬的毕加索一心沉醉于绘画,连自己的孩子都不见,但他对赵无极非常亲切。每次在画廊见面,他都热情地招呼:"矮个子中国人!"若赵无极不在,他也会问,"那个矮个子中国人来了吗?"
评价
周春芽:他是影响最大的华人艺术家
身在国外的周春芽第一时间在微博表达了对大师去世的遗憾。"一个在国际上影响最大的华人艺术家,一个对世界美术史发展有贡献的艺术家,一个受人尊敬的艺术家。"周春芽昨日告诉记者,自己曾在展览时见过赵无极,但因其长期住在国外,和国内艺术家的联系寥寥无几,自己也是通过一些传记解到赵无极的生活点滴。在周春芽的印象里,赵无极是非常诚实的人,有着朴实的老一辈艺术家的精神,待人宽容。最重要的是,赵无极的艺术对早期国内艺术家的创作影响非常大,也是影响最大的华人艺术家,"他的抽象绘画带有中国传统文化的思想和风格,在美术史上具有不可限量的地位和影响。"
吕澎:西方艺术史少不了他
批评家吕澎也表达了缅怀之情。其评价:"他的作品有着鲜明的中国传统风格和气质。他将写意画融入作品中,使得其抽象绘画有了鲜明的个人特征。他的作品一直受到世界艺术界的重视,在西方介绍艺术史的着作中也少不了他。"
陈默:成就不低于"齐徐张"
批评家陈默表示:"赵无极去世后,短期内不会出现另一个对西方艺术有如此大影响的华人画家。"陈默说,"赵无极的成就绝对不低于齐白石和徐悲鸿,张大千对东西方艺术的交流有贡献,但其贡献也远不及赵无极。"

After 50s
After 50s its creation can be divided into two stages. The first phase was in 60s and early in the early 70s. Works with black, brown, dark tone, fierce strokes, full of strength, a sense of motion picture, after the middle of the 70s, Zhao Wuji painting into another stage, the painting skills are more skilled, the color becomes bright and beautiful picture to focus more on the pursuit of space and light, contains various elements of nature and the world. The scenery has more meaning, the atmosphere more calm.
After 1959, his works further emerge from the image, description and plot, more forthright expression of spirit and emotion. He likes big canvas painting shop on the ground, enjoy the unrestrained. Zhao Wuji was deeply influenced by the China culture, works are always filled with oriental flavor, exquisite flavor.
After 80s
80s after Zhao Wuji's artist international reputation, art status to climb the peak of the era. During the creation of heart freely, regardless of color and pen are sharp, firm and confident. Over the same period as the "the Peach Garden" wonderful giant 25.06.86, the suspension of the purple grape and deep blue layers of white, gray and white smoke tone to create a waterfall like scenes of turbulence. Confused, gray and brown ore through the comparative performance of cobalt, and continuously to the mutual penetration and expansion, during a flow of style; the artist pen. When light weight, the viewer into an endless space to imagine flying. Three straight stream is very special, with Chinese vertical composition ink painting as a blueprint, meaningful. The works preserved in European private collections, in 2012 Sotheby's spring auction will expose the valuation of 18 million to HK $28 million.
After 90s
In 90s, Zhao Wuji's painting is consummate, on the one hand, more images, such as "90 years" in October 25th with the moonlight like water, "February 6th 96" is gangluan tree shape; on the other hand, but also into the image, further reflect the unique China philosophy of heaven the spirit of ecstasy, empty and quiet state.
December 2002, Zhao Wuji was elected College France Academy of life. Zhao Wuji won the French legion of Honor Medal, the national group third group third medal, the medal of art and literature group, Paris City, the Japanese Empire Medal of Arts Award etc..

No sir, very early for Italy Holland and France and other classical painting style, by Picasso, Matisse and other Western modernist art master Klee, in order to "do not copy the natural and natural reproduction" in the creation, he experienced many painful process of self denial, "compliance observe moments is not creation". He had expressed in the creation of memories of life, in the face of the day before the painting works, he refused to comply the will of color and space and get great pleasure in the brush, painting and the "struggle" day in and day out, although have discouraged and tired. Zhao Wuji is worthy of a painstaking creation of art. Apart from painting, he sees very light about other things. When asked something specific, he always said that it would need to ask Mrs. Francois.
Mr. Zhao believes that artists should use painting to speak, it has been insisting that the less artists say the better". Good works of art must be telepathic communication with the audience, a comment on the people of the world. The laughing introduced, he devoted his life to painting the hearts of the painting, and have fun in the continuous creation. Every day he still adhere to the four or five hours of creation, but in order to maintain physical strength and be able to climb up and down on the easel, he insisted on playing golf in a week under the guidance of the coach. According to the 60's wife Francois, Mr. Zhao every year in Fontainebleau often villa Huibi painting, more studio store a lot of finished frame, including one specifically for the lady and passion creation entitled "red" works.
Mr. Zhao Wuji from 50s in Paris painting brand head exposed corner, has been kept in the international art world famous record, he enjoyed the international art world for many of his honor and respect, but also Chinese art glory.
Mr. Zhao Wuji in the early days of Hangzhou national art college to study, by Lin Fengmian. What he learned from Lin Fengmian is not the specific painting skills, but the spirit of innovation and the pursuit of artistic freedom realm of Lin Fengmian. From his early works can be seen, he is a gifted quality painter, with no shelter to express their feeling in the works, is not confined to academic realistic skills, but also with the freedom to express his dream.
Also because of the dream of art, he went to Paris. Later proved that his temperament and French culture almost natural affinity, in the land to smooth development. His art is never overbearing edge, the revival in postwar European painting exploration boom is very consistent; his art is full of wisdom and profound, which enabled him to constantly promote and improve their own style in decades, each stage has a new realm; his art full of sensibility, and the French the whole art in the kind of warm and elegant taste with congenial. The French received his first art in the feeling, and the whole western painting from the logic of art history in recognition of his art.
Mr. Zhao Wuji is in overseas to meet the tide of Western abstract painting, he started from the performance of figurative painting, into symbolic imagery painting, and then developed into abstract painting, in the process of establishing the style, his artistic realm also increasingly expand. Western abstract painting is done on canvas form construction, Mr. Zhao Wuji from the vision and feelings about the nature of the rise as the abstract language, which opened with the Western abstract painting distance. His stage works is a completely abstract form of the world, but the stack of print in a full of life rhythm of the natural world, let life many projected illusion from the aesthetic imagination, see the vast natural changes.
