Art reflects the spirit of the times. The landscape paintings of An Gyeon display the flourishing cultural period of King Sejong’s reign while the bamboo paintings of Yi Jeong represent the unshaken spirit of Joseon scholars during the harsh times of the Japanese invasion of Korea in the 16th century. The true-view landscape paintings of Jeong Seon speak for the sound foundation of true-view culture during King Yeongjo’s reign, while the genre paintings of Sin Yun-Bok show the fragrant scent of full-blown romantic culture during King Jeongjo’s reign.
This exhibition aims to help visitors discover the true character of Korean culture and history through enjoyment of these masterpieces. The artwork displayed here redefines the life and sprit of Kansong Chun Hyeong-Pil, who devoted his whole life to protect these priceless cultural treasures. Moreover, it is hoped that visitors can gain insight into their own daily life through appreciation of the cultural traces of Korea’s glorious past, and can thereby better strive toward an improved future.
