“Revelations of the Brush: Joseon Scholar Ink Paintings,” to be exhibited in the main gallery this September 2010 Asia Week, showcases classic monochromatic screens and hanging scrolls by Korean scholar officials of the late Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). The exhibition, which compares and contrasts traditional scholarly subjects as depicted by different artists — including “Four Gentlemen” (plum, orchid, chrysanthemum and bamboo), landscapes, and calligraphy — seeks to facilitate a greater understanding of the essence of classic Korean ink paintings and the nineteenth-century scholars who produced them.

Represented are such artist luminaries as Prince YI Ha Ung (1820-1898), HEO Ryeon (1809-1892), JEONG Tae-o (early 19th century), AN Jung-sik (1816-1919), and JO Hui-ryong (1789-1866).

On view from September 16 to October 2nd, Tuesday to Sunday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
