Orchids Painting by Kim Eung Won aka Soho (1855-1921)

Though Taewongun (Prince Yi Ha Eung) is often cited as the greatest painter of orchids, most scholars now agree that it was Kim Eung Won aka Soho (1855-1921) who was painting many of the paintings for which Daewongun took credit and which Daewongun signed. Daewongun was, of course, a great painter of orchids, but most agree now that Kim Eung Won may deserve the title of greatest. His paintings sell for a fraction of the price of Daewongun's paintings, at least for now. That can be expected to change as the general public catches up with the scholarship on the subject. Ink on silk. Scroll: 72.5 x 19 inches, 184.15 x 48.25 cm; Painting: 45 x 13.5 inches, 114.25 x 34.25 cm. (A much smaller Daewongun painting just sold at Christie's for $12,500 on March 18, 2014).
