The new edition, “Handbook of Korean ART” has all informations of Folk painting of Korea.

This volume presents in-depth survey of a unique genre of Korean painting that flourished during the 18th to the early 20th centuries. Viewed at the time as inferior to the traditional mainstream of classical Chinese scholar-painting, Korean folk painting was the work of humble artists who declined, indeed, were probably unable to inscribe the date or their names on the masterpieces.

Easy to use, informative and it keeps you interested in art.
