|Pomegranates Painting and Poem celebrating his 80th Birthday, by Kim Yong Jin (1879-1968). His paintings are collected and admired by Koreans for capturing the spiritual essence of the scholar gentleman. The pomegranates, with their many seeds, is a symbol of fertility or productivity or great bounty. An appropriate subject for one of Korea's most popular and beloved artists to portray as he celebrates his 80th year. Ink and colors on paper with a silk mount. There is a one-inch tear in the bottom right corner of the mount that can be very easily repaired (see the bottom right corner of photo #2 here). The rest of the mount, and the painting itself, is in Excellent Condition. Mounting: 81.5 x 17 inches, 207 x 43 cm; Painting: 52 x 13 inches, 132 x 33 cm.|
