A Pair of Korean Paintings

Lot 0362 Details

Description
Joeson dynasty (1392-1910), 18th or 19th century, ink and colors on paper, depicts the ideal world of immortals featuring the Guardian kings and other deities descending towards the earth on clouds, a blend of Buddhist and Confucian iconography, very similar to Chinese Qing dynasty paintings of same period with similar stylized clouds and dress, but figures here are featured without halos and their facial style and lack of color to the clouds are closer to the Korean tradition, possibly part of a larger grouping, framed identically under glass, not examined outside of the frame.
DOA 53.75 x 29.75 in.
The Estate of Mary Gorham Bynum of Rockingham and Pinehurst, NC
Additional high-resolution photos are available at LelandLittle.com
Condition
A few small areas of loss to paper; some minor creasing; some water damage to border; some dirt and red color to top and bottom of one painting.
