Why this is a
Masterpiece

Being the earliest of the dated paintings of Jeong Seon, the great master of the late Joseon Dynasty, this album holds great significance in that it introduces the beginning of Jeong Seon's “true-view landscape” painting style. Compared to the “real scenery landscape,” a common painting technique around the time to depict actual scenery, thirteen separate pieces compiled in this album vividly portray Jeong Seon’s keen observation and curiosity of the scenery. He implemented various compositional methods and brushstrokes to describe the different scenes of landscapes and reached the culmination of his “true-view landscape" in this album.

History of the Object
Completed by Jeong Seon at the age of thirty-five, this is the earliest of his dated paintings. The album consists of 13 leaves depicting the scenic spots of Mt. Geumgangsan including Inner and Outer Geumgangsan and Coastal Geumgangsan. According to the inscription, the painting was ordered by a man named Baekseok Gong when he traveled around Mt. Geumgangsan with Jeong Seon for the second time in 1711.
