|Orchids Painting and Calligraphy by Chung Hae. The beautifully rendered calligraphy reads: 'Fragrant orchid flowers at sunset'. The orchid is a favorite subject for paintings by Korean scholars, because it is an important and ancient symbol of modesty and purity. This is a great example of this genre, with its wonderfully inventive and whimsical brushwork. Frame: 25 x 18.25 inches, 63.5 x 46.25 cm; Painting: 17.25 x 13.25 inches, 44 x 33.5 cm.|
