The Only Antique Korean Painting of "Buddha with the Sun and Moon Spirit" Ever Offered for Sale outside of Korea. And perhaps the only 18th century Korean painting with this subject matter ever offered anywhere. Exceedingly Rare and Beautiful. The pair of deities seated at the front of the painting from right to left are the Spirits of the Sun (Ilgangcheonja) and the Moon (Weolgangcheonja). They are known collectively as Ilweol Sinjang. The celestial orbs are in their crowns and overhead. The Sun Spirit's sunlight scatters darkness and misfortune and brings prosperity. The Moon Spirit relieves people's anxiety with moonlight. Buddha is attended by boys (Dongja) on each side of him. Frame: 40 x 23.5 inches, 101 x 60 cm. Painting: 33.5 x 18 inches, 85 x 46 cm.

Rare and beautiful late 19th Century painting of the Korean Mountain Spirit (Sansin) with a scarce sacred white tiger and boy attendant (Dongja) alongside a stream in an idyllic mountain landscape on finely handwoven silk mounted on a gold silk scroll. Sansin's tiger is the animal lord of the mountain and the messenger for Sansin and the enforcer of his will. The white tiger holds special meaning in Korea. It was believed that when a tiger survived challenges and attained wisdom, his fur turned white and he became a sacred spirit. The tiger is a national symbol of Korea and the white tiger was the mascot of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea. Very few antique Korean paintings with white tigers are in existence. The Dongja holds Sansin's wood staff, as gnarled as the pine tree under which he sits. The pine tree is a symbol of longevity and tenacity. In a country where most of the land is covered by mountains, it makes sense that Sansin the Mountain Spirit is the most revered of Korea's native deities. He is the god most often appealed to for fertility, prosperity, and longevity. This Sansin is a great example of the open-minded syncretism of ancient Korean belief. He is a deity of purely Korean Shamanist origin, crowned by a delicately painted Confucian hat, wearing a Buddhist robe, and being attended by a Dongja boy in a utopian Daoist mountain landscape. Sansin paintings can be found in the Sansin-gak shrine of Korean Buddhist temples. Gold silk mount: 59 x 31.5 inches (80 cm). Painting: 36.5 x 25.5 inches (93 x 65 cm).

The only authentic pair of 19th Century Korean paintings of Generals ever offered for sale. Such painted figures were popular guardians of business because of their two-thousand-year history as paradigms of victory and loyalty. This pair, because of its high quality, was undoubtedly commissioned by a prominent 19th century Korean merchant to bless, protect, and bring prosperity to their business. There would have been a shaman ritual at the consecration of this pair of paintings at the place of business. On the right is the legendary 3rd century General Kwan-u, instantly identified by his crane feather fan. He is attended by a boy (Dongja) serving him the mythical peaches of immortality. On the left is Janggun, the ancient mythological general. He is holding a military trident. There are many 20th century reproductions of these types of paintings. Authentic Joseon Dynasty examples like this exist only in museums. And even in museums, a pair like this is very rare. You can discern authenticity by the material and quality, such as fine hand-woven silk and mineral pigments that give warmth and depth and are vivid but not garish like modern chemical paints. The originals like this are valued not only for their superior artistry, but also for the connection they provide to the culture and spirituality of ancient authentic Korean shamanism. Much of modern Korean art and culture is rooted in shamanism. Its influence pervades Korean society, whether or not one is aware of it. This is not art for art’s sake. Within the broad realm of Korean folk art, shaman art expresses the deepest desires of the Korean people. That is why these wonderful creations speak so directly to persons of all persuasions, even today. Frame: 40 x 26 inches, 102 x 66 cm. Painting: 34.5 x 20.5 inches, 88 x 52 cm.

The last rare Joseon Dynasty Munjado-Chaekgeori combination screen offered for sale was a decade ago at auction. It will likely be at least that long until you see another, if you ever see one for sale again at all. Even most museums have been unable to find one to acquire. The Cleveland Museum has a fine example. This rare combination of Munjado and Chaekgeori was painted only in the Gangwon Province. Munjado screens have eight pictorial ideographs depicting the Eight Confucian Virtues: Hyo (Filial Piety), Je (Fraternity), Chung (Loyalty), Shin (Trust), Ye (Propriety), Ui (Justice), Yeom (Integrity), and Chi (Conscience). Unique to Korean munjado screens are paintings of various creatures that since ancient times have symbolized the virtue they accompany here. Confucian values were regarded as the cornerstones of Korean society and Munjado screen paintings representing them were used as daily reminders to observe the Eight Virtues. Chaekgeori screens feature scholarly accoutrements such as books and writing tables, brush pots and scrolls, fans, along with items that would adorn the scholar's study such as potted flowers and plants, and fruit in bowls. Within the Confucian society of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), scholars were highly respected and Chaekgeori screens were typically displayed behind the desk in a study to convey an air of dignity, luxury, and a reverence for scholarship. These screens were also intended to instill these values in the children of the household. Ink and colors on paper. Total dimensions: 65 x 140 inches, 165 x 356 cm. Each painting: 65 x 17.5 inches, 165 x 44.5 cm.
