Korean Scroll Painting

Korean Scroll Painting

A two-panel screen painting, pigment on silk, now mounted as a hanging scroll, Yi Dynasty, early 20th Century. Ht. 55"; W. 29" (including mounting). This screen shows a continuous bookcase across all the panels. Ch'aikkori were still-life paintings of Chinese objects meant to be used in a scholar's study. They are uniquely Korean and reflect the respect for Chinese precious objects. A similar screen is in the Brooklyn Museum and is discussed in Moes, Korean Art From the Brooklyn Museum Collection (1987) p. 122 #51.
