Why this is a
Masterpiece

This unusually high and long hand scroll depicts mother nature as an endless expanse of rivers and mountains, and represents a wish for the eternal prosperity of the Joseon period, its land and people. Yi portrayed this grand landscape from far above, leaving viewers with an impression of ever-changing nature. Refined brush strokes and the sensitive use of color are the characteristics of Yi's painting.

History of the Object
The creator of this painting is Yi In-mun, who was a court painter of the 18th century. The two seals, reading 'Chusa' on the front and 'Chusa jinjang'(treasured collection of Chusa) on the back of the painting, inform us that this painting once belonged to the collection of Kim Jeong-hui, the great calligrapher and painter of Joseon.
