Why this is a
Masterpiece

Jeong Seon's accomplished artistry is fully demonstrated in this impressive depiction of Mt. Inwang, as viewed after a rain shower on a summer day. The wet, gigantic rocks are effectively described with repeated layers of dense ink strokes. They emerge with reigning dignity over a valley wrapped in hazy mist. It is designated as Korean National Treasure No. 216.

History of the Object
This is undisputedly the greatest masterpiece by Jeong Seon, produced during the mature years of this towering figure in the history of Korean landscape painting. Born in the area of Mt. Bugak (North Mountain in Seoul), Jeong lived most of his later years at the foot of Mt. Inwang, located in the northwestern section of old Seoul. It is said that he tremendously enjoyed painting the mountain as viewed from his house. This magnificent piece is dated 1751, when the artist was 76 years old.
