A very large silk yonhwado painting by Korean painter Hang San is a serene and soft scene of three waterfowl nestled among large lotus leaves. Traditional Korean lotus paintings, called yonhwado, were displayed in Korean homes during summer months on the open wood verandah or on the walls of the gentlemen's quarters. This late Choson early 20th century painting owes its calm to the placement and muted tones of the green leaves and a few rings of blue water on the fine silk. The scene includes three birds rather than the unusual pair, with the two in the foreground rendered in much greater detail. The work is signed and sealed by the artist on the lower left. The painting is in excellent condition. The traditional rounded corner wood frame and finely patterned blue silk mat are of more recent vintage than the painting. Dimensions including frame: height 49" (125 cm), width 25" (64 cm). Dimensions of painting only: height 43" (109 cm), width 19" (48 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
