About Kim Gyu-jin (1868-1933)

The famous late-Joseon literati painter Kim Gyu-Jin excelled at the traditional scholarly pursuits of painting and calligraphy. Kim taught calligraphy and painting to King Gojong’s son, and in 1920 was commissioned by King Sunjong to paint a mural of Geumgangsan (Diamond Mountain). Kim was instrumental in developing new Korean artists; he opened one of the first modern art galleries in Seoul in 1913 and founded a three-year training course for new artists.
