근대의 전통화가들: 호남과 서울
Korean Traditional Painters of the Modern Era-Honam and Seoul
  • Period 2019-09-27 ~ 2019-11-24
  • 내용 The history of painting during the Joseon Dynasty evolved around Hanyang, the capital city of the kingdom, while it was Gyeongseong that served as the backdrop for the dramatic changes that Korean traditional painting underwent due to the rapid influx of modern Western civilization into the country after the opening of its ports. As such, the history of Korean traditional painting seems to have unfolded against the background of Seoul, yet understanding the overall trajectory of Korean art history inevitably requires knowledge of regional art history as well. In the case of Korean traditional painting, in particular, the region that is as important as Seoul is Honam, the present-day Jeolla Province.
    This exhibition presents the works of Korean traditional painters Jo Seok-jin (趙錫晋, b. 1853), An Jung-sik (安中植, b. 1861), and Kim Eun-ho (金殷鎬, b. 1892) who were active in Seoul from the opening of the ports throughout the 20th century, alongside the activities of their Honam contemporaries including Chae Yong-shin (蔡龍臣, b. 1850), Heo Hyeong (許瀅, b. 1862), and Heo Baek-ryeon (許百鍊, b. 1891). Even though they were born in the same era, they pursued their art in different regions, Seoul and Honam, thus forging their own unique oeuvres that nonetheless share similar aspects. The colorful artworks of these six Korean traditional painters that are presented together in this exhibition may provide viewers with the opportunity to learn firsthand how they have each enriched Korean art in the modern era.

Special Exhibition
  • Period 2018-05-18 ~ 2018-07-01
  • 내용 This exhibition was comprised of four parts. The first part, “Learning from Tradition,” introduced the early works of Ilseop that were created together with the prominent monks of the late Joseon Dynasty. Ilseop began producing Buddhist paintings in 1918, and traveled all over the country in search of those who could teach him how to paint. Even after meeting Boeung Munseung (1867-1954), who would become his lifelong teacher, Ilseop worked with many senior painters, from whom he learned various facets of Buddhist art including Buddha statues, paintings and dancheong (multicolor paintworks on wooden buildings).
    The second part titled “Leading the Buddhist Art Circles in Modern Times” shed light on the important events that occurred, which helped Ilseop established himself as a central figure in the Buddhist art circles after he began creating Buddhist artworks independent of his teacher.
    The third part, “The Path of Ilseop,” introduced the masterpieces Ilseop created in his 40s and 50s. This was the time period in which he engaged in prolific activities, leading numerous juniors and students. He created a massive Hubuldo that was more than 4m in height and produced all of the Buddha statues, paintings and dancheong of a Buddhist temple, thereby becoming a prominent all-round artist producing Buddhist works on large scale.
    The fourth part, “From Artisan to Artist,” focused on his diverse activities that contributed to the advancement of modern Buddhist art as well as his activities as an educator. In his later years, Ilseop made various efforts to further develop Buddhist art such as founding a Buddhist art organization, submitting his works to contests, and publishing a book. In addition, he was designated as Intangible Cultural Property No. 48 as a dancheong artisan in 1971. He also dedicated himself to fostering Buddhist painters among the younger generations, who are now actively involved in the Buddhist art circles under the name “Ilseopmundohoe.”
