Guest Book

A magnificent Korean landscape like this needs a contemplative and appreciative soul to take it all in, and you'll find him here in the humble hut atop the bottom cliff. The standard 17th century manual of painting stated, "Figures should be painted in such a way that people, looking at the picture, wish that they could change places with them." The monk in this painting has taken a walk away from the temple in the higher part of the mountains to enjoy solitude under a tent with an awe-inspiring view. A good Korean mountain painting is more than a beautiful landscape; it is also a profound philosophical and spiritual statement. Heaven, Earth, and Humanity are represented. Mountain paintings are the most important paintings for traditional Korean artists. Most Korean homes and places of business have one proudly displayed in a place of prominence. Ink on paper. Frame size: 34.75 x 18.75 inches, 88 x 47.5 cm; Painting size: 24 x 13 inches, 61 x 33 cm.
