This large framed Korean brush painting, signed and sealed by Korean artist Jae Min, is 58 inches in height. The late 19th century painting of a stand of bamboo shows the finely constrained lines and subtlety of the brush in the hands of a master. Ink and slight color on paper, it is matted with plain black silk and set within a traditional wood rounded corner Korean frame. A thin gold holding line separates the painting and mat. Touches of color appear in the red artist's seal on the lower right and in the faint blue/green leaves scattered below the bamboo. An Asian emblem of longevity because it is evergreen and durable, bamboo was a favored subject among Korea's classically trained painters, who produced beautifully spare works such as this one in which every line is infused with sensibility. This piece is in good condition, with signs of age in paper surface damage in a small area at the top and faint blue ghosting that appears in the upper quarter background. Dimensions including frame: height 58" (147 cm), width 27" (69 cm). Dimensions of painting: height 52" (132 cm), width 21-1/2" (55 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
