Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is Korea's Treasure No. 1406. The long scroll is divided into four sections. Each contains the title, painting, prose and poetry as well as a list and profile of participating members. The figures, walls, gate and surrounding landscape, including the trees and rocks, are briefly rendered. The trees and rocks in the bottom left corner are depicted only in outline (Baek-myo백묘 technique). The ink tone variations and the angular perspective used in representing the buildings are typical of documentary paintings of the 15th and the 16th centuries.
