Calligraphy by the Joseon Dynasty's Last Prime Minister, Lee Wan Yong aka Ildang (1858 - 1926). He was prime minister of Korea in 1906 - 1910. Lee is Korea's most infamous traitor, the "Benedict Arnold of Korea", for signing the Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty in 1910. Connoisseurs begrudgingly acknowledge his great talents as a calligrapher, but the disdain with which he is regarded keeps the demand, and thus the prices of his work very low. Mounted on sky blue silk. Scroll: 74.5 x 17.5 inches, 189 x 44.5 cm; Calligraphy: 51.5 x 12.75 inches, 131 x 32.5 cm.

Chaekkori, paintings depicting books and scholar's items, are abundant with symbols of diligence, motivation, good fortune and virtue. Chaekkori are uniquely Korean, despite the fact that many of the items depicted in a Chaekkori are Chinese. The Joseon Dynasty Korean scholar had much respect for Chinese art and learning, but expressed that admiration in a uniquely Korean manner through Chaekkori. We see items here that indicate refined comfort, but more important than the sense of gentility that is conveyed, is the ideal of self-improvement to which everyone could aspire: rich or poor, young or old. Though the items depicted were not readily available to the poor, the Chaekkori could inspire them nonetheless. Adults enjoyed them, but they would also be placed in children's rooms to teach them the value and beauty of culture and learning. French artists as early as the 1880's saw ideas in this genre that they imported into their own art. Frame: 29 x 16.75 inches, 73.5 x 42.5 cm; Painting: 23.75 x 11.5 inches, 60.5 x 29 cm. Mineral pigments on old hand-woven silk.
