Eight-Panels of Grapevine Screen

Choe Seok-hwan was one of the most active painters of grapevine
painting in Korea during the 19th century, and his paintings were extremely sought after during his lifetime. He was active in the
Jeolla Province (in southwestern South Korea), and known for the decorative quality of his works.

These days, Choe’s grapevines are admired for their modern sensibili-
ty, monumental calligraphic brush strokes and dramatically sweeping
composition. His screens have long been admired by Japanese col-
lectors and continue to be popular today.
