1957年,收藏家王賜勇15歲那年,父親王木發先生收藏的兩幅畫作 (洪瑞麟《靜物》與楊三郎《海景》)為他種下了熱愛藝術的種子。日後,雖接管家族的紡織事業,王賜勇仍無法忘懷藝術在他內心碰觸到的那份感動。在閒暇或積累過多工作壓力時,便常到國內畫廊走動或出國看展,這一逛就是長達四十幾年的經驗累積,也成就了他與眾不同的獨到眼光。

 

現在回頭來看,王賜勇的藝術品味超前於時代,包含他自1989年起開始收藏華人藝術家常玉、潘玉良的作品,並在廣為人知前便收藏他們的作品,但如此獨特的品味卻也讓他倍感孤單,所幸能與作品無聲對話,透過作品,王賜勇觸碰到藝術家的內心,尤其明白創作者踽踽獨行的寂寞,只因他們同樣默默在堅持做自己認為對的事,王賜勇最為欣賞的兩位藝術家-余承堯及林壽宇,共同之處在於,他們畫出心中的山水與內心的寧靜,不為市場,不為迎合他人而畫,而是將美的記憶、感動,透過畫布留存下來。對他來說,作品未來都將是美術史上重要的寶藏,應妥善保存,才有機會被世人看到,並帶來啓發。他最終的願望便是將他最喜愛、最與他性格相仿的兩位藝術家之創作,有系統且有脈絡地呈現給觀眾。

 

為了讓更多人能欣賞到父親王賜勇數十年來精心收藏的作品,一圓其夢想,

美源美術館逐漸醞釀成型,將於2016年10月29日開幕,如同美源美術館的標誌,以圓包圍三條線構成的Y,象徵三個世代所澆灌而出的美學沃土,美源一代傳承一代的美學精神,在於堅持收藏的初心,不為投資而收藏,而是為了喜愛、重現作品本質的重要性,回歸到只為藝術觸動到的內心,美源要把「愛」傳遞分享給更多人,這個純粹專一的動機-「分享感動」就是美源美術館存在的意義。美源將以「微型美術館」的概念經營,跳脫傳統藝廊展出思維,轉型為藝術品的研究機構,除積極與國內外美術館及藝術基金會交流合作、不定期推出展覽外,也計劃出版余承堯、林壽宇等藝術家專書,建構完整的檔案資料庫,更期盼致力於余承堯及林壽宇作品研究的學者及專業人士能一同加入美源的團隊,成立藝術品的研究與鑑定團隊,建構專業藝術知識平台。

MEIYUAN ART MUSEUM 

MISSION STATEMENT

In 1957, when art collector Mr. Raymond Wang was just 15, his father collected the family’s first two works of art: HUNG Juei-Lin’s Still Life and YANG San Lang’s Seascape.  These two paintings ignited Mr. Wang’s life-long love of art. Starting in 1971, he began his collecting career which would span more than forty years and hundreds of paintings.  He visited museums and art galleries in Taiwan and abroad, whenever possible, developing a keen eye and a refined taste for art. Throughout his life, including the years working in the family’s textile and manufacturing businesses, Mr. Wang never forgot the passion triggered in him by his family’s first two paintings.

 

In hindsight, we see that Mr. Wang’s collection was ahead of it’s time. For example, he began collecting Sanyu and Pan Yu Liang in 1989, long before their artwork came to be widely appreciated by the public. Indeed, his two favorite artists, YU Cheng Yao and Richard Lin are now coming into public awareness, decades after Mr. Wang began collecting their works.  Mr. Wang believes that time will reveal these artists’ works to be not only inspiration to many, but also important treasures in the history of art.  Guided not by market trends or the pleasure of others, but instead by authentic emotional experiences in communion with nature, these two artists left their impressions on the canvas.  Mr. Wang himself was also not guided by market trends but collected artwork guided by his intuition, seeking artists whose individuality resonated with his own, while often finding himself alone in the championing certain artists.

 

Led by Ms. Brenda Wang, the Mei Yuan Art Museum officially opens on October 29, 2016. The museum’s logo is the letter “Y” in the center of a circle representing three generations of art collectors.  These three generations share a pure notion of sharing art for the love of art.  Mei Yuan Art Museum’s mission is to spread this love of art while keeping a strong connection to the aspects of art that touch the human soul.  The museum’s intimate “mini-museum” concept allows visitors the possibility of the same special communion with the art felt by Mr. Wang throughout his life.

 

The Mei Yuan Art Museum intends to cooperate with other museums and art foundations to create great exhibitions while specializing in the works of YU Cheng Yao and Richard Lin.  The museum intends to build up a Catalogue Raisonné for these artists combining research, publications and other information.  We welcome professionals and researchers to join our team to build this platform and database.  Eventually we will have a team to authenticate their artwork as well.
