Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is a painting from the mid Joseon Period (the year of Byeongin) which depicts the Haegeum River of Goseong, Gangwon Province. This painting follows the perspective of True-view landscape paintings (Jingyeongsansuhwa) explained by 'Jongbuksoseon Jaseo'; there are no waves on faraway seawater, no trees on faraway mountains, and no facial contours such as nose, eye, etc. on one's face. This is one of the greatest masterpieces of that time. The colors are comparatively good. It is a good source for studying the paintings of that time.

History of the Object
It is said that a father who could not flee from the North during the Korean War (1950~1953) gave this painting to his son and told him to use it in times of emergency. The son who had fled to Geoje Island, when his son fell seriously ill, took him to Haedong Hospital for treatment and gave this painting as payment to the doctor who saved his son. Afterwards, Geoje Museum purchased the painting.
