SOLD
Two large, lush lotus leaves in soft shades of green dominate this early 20th century Korean painting. Though generally referred to as folk art, Korean works such as this fall into a category unique to Korea known as "functional" or "popular" art. Unlike true folk art, Korean functional paintings were usually the work of professional artists; it was subject matter and widespread use of the paintings by all classes of society that made them similar to folk art...

Dimensions: height of bell 13" (33 cm), bell diameter 8" (20 cm).

The dragon of the clouds is portrayed in this 150-year-old painting that is from a uniquely Korean genre called "functional painting." Although often called folk art, such Korean works differed from folk art as the term is used elsewhere because in Korea they usually were executed by trained, professional artists or by painter-monks rather than by amateurs...

The Manchurian cranes and ancient pine tree in this 150-year-old Korean painting have been used throughout Asia for centuries as symbols to convey wishes for long life and happy marriage. The two red-headed cranes were adopted as emblems of both longevity and fidelity because cranes mate for life and were believed to live well beyond 600 years of age. The pine tree was used as a symbol of long life since it is forever green...

From late 18th/early 19th century Korea, the striking characters on this four-panel folding screen represent four principles of Confucian morality. The paintings are called "munjado" and were used in Yi Dynasty households to teach Confucian virtues to children as well as to serve as daily reminders to adults about values they should uphold. Confucian ideals were then and still are exceptionally important in Korean society...

Signed and sealed by Korean painter Lo Cok, this large early 20th century brush painting of three fishermen returning home with the day's catch is done in bold strokes of grey and black ink on paper.

The unusual scene--the man in the rear holding a bamboo pole points to the kneeling man who is being stepped over by the man in the foreground--may relate to a folk legend...

This mid-19th century pictorial ideograph painting, called a "munjado," has an interesting cultural tie to Korea and its strong Confucian ideals. Ink and slight color on paper, it is unsigned as is typical for munjado. The ideograph is a graphic, stylized interpretation of the Chinese character "shin" meaning "trust," which is one of the eight major Confucian principles of morality. Throughout the Yi Dynasty inscriptions on paintings were in Chinese characters rather than Korean Hangul to signif...

San-shin, the mountain god, is the subject of this very large 19th century stone color on canvas painting that once hung in a Korean Buddhist temple. A special area was set aside in most temples to honor the mountain spirit, which was gradually absorbed into Korean Buddhism from shamanistic belief beginning around the 15th century in the early Chosen Period. Temple paintings of San-shin always show an old man and a tiger. The mountain spirit is not exclusively the old man or the tiger, but is re...
