|Large Painting of Roses by Ahn Byung Suk aka Ko Kok, painted in 1953 to commemorate and offer hope at the end of the Korean War. It says that the four seasons will always remain joyful. Roses in Korea bloom for a long time, from spring to late autumn/early winter, so they are a symbol of a long youth lived with vigor, and a long life blessed with beauty, apt and inspiring symbolism for a country recovering from a horrible war. The roses here are beautifully painted and filled with hope. Ink and colors on paper. Frame: 60 x 21 inches, cm; Painting: 49 x 13 inches, cm.|
