絲綢在龐大的貿易網絡中,一直是備受中外商旅追捧的商品。它在古代世界所扮演的角色極為豐富──絲綢既是一種紡織原料,亦是一種貨幣和用以賦稅之物,更是藝術家和文人的創作媒介和題材。多個世紀以來,絲綢是美的象徵,它與中國藝術和文學緊密交織。

自宋代 (九六零至一二七九) 起至清代 (一六四四至一九一一),工匠以梭子和針為筆、以絲線為彩,創作織繡書畫。織工和繡工的巧手將緙絲和刺繡幻化成觀賞性藝術品── 一種集繪畫、書法、手工梭織或刺繡之美於一身的藝術形式。正是這種跨媒介特質,讓栩栩如生的緙繡書畫在中國視覺文化中持續享有獨特的地位。

香港大學美術博物館所藏清代至二十世紀中葉的中國絲織物,題材豐富,形式多樣,包括立軸、掛屏、幡及龍袍等。每件織物既展現出工匠的鬼斧神工,亦訴說着清代紡織業的種種故事。

Prized by Chinese and foreign merchants as an essential commodity along a vast trade network, silk served multiple roles throughout the ancient world: as fabric for garments, as a form of currency and method of tax payment, and as a medium and subject matter for professional artists and the literati class. Over the centuries, silk fabrics have remained synonymous with beauty and are entwined throughout Chinese art and literature.

Beginning in the Song dynasty (960─1279) and flourishing into the Qing (1644─1911), craftsmen took up shuttles and needles as their brushes and silk threads as their pigments, creating exquisitely woven and embroidered pictorial and calligraphic works. In the hands of the weavers and embroiderers, weft-woven silk tapestry ("kesi") and embroidery ("cixiu") evolved into an art form—a fusion of painting, calligraphy and hand weaving or embroidering for aesthetic appreciation. When viewed together, the interdisciplinary nature of these vivid depictions of images and text occupy a unique and unbroken place within the history of Chinese visual culture.

Extending from the Qing dynasty to the mid-20th century, UMAG’s silk textile collection encompasses a diverse range of subjects and formats that include hanging scrolls, framed panels, banners and robes. Each artwork exemplifies the sophisticated craftsmanship of the artisans and the collective stories of the Qing dynasty’s textile industry.
