Mountain Village Along the River by 19th Century Artist Baek Woon Jang aka Yoosoo. A tranquil painting that masterfully utilizes a variety of brush techniques to capture a beautiful scene from Korea long ago. For centuries in Korea, a rendering of a mountain and river (called Sansu in Korean) is more than a beautiful landscape; it is also a profound philosophical and spiritual statement. Heaven, Earth, and Humanity are represented, by the mountain, river, and humans or their homes, respectively. Sansu paintings are the most important paintings for traditional Korean artists. Most Korean homes and places of business have one proudly displayed in a place of prominence. Frame: 17 x 17 inches, 43 x 43 cm ; Painting: 12 x 12 inches, 30.5 x 30.5 cm.
