ABSTRACT

This paper is an examination of paintings depicting Lin Bu in past events in Korea and Japan. The story of Lin Bu, which emanatet from China was reproduced in paintings of old occasions and enjoyed for a long time throughout the Joseon Dynasty of Korea and the Edo Period of Japan. The initial pieces imitated Chinese works but since then both countries have created original images Korean depictions created landscapes that minimize the appearance of the figure of Lin Bu who admired people and highlight the image of Lin Bu as a classical scholar by capturing the surrounding environment on the entire canvas. This is because of Lin Bu’s hermitry which was accepted rather than his character. As a result, Korean painting features include old events that portray Lin Bu's symbolic media complexly such as Gosanbanghakdo, where the artist's emotions are incorporated into the work. On the other hand, in Japan, landscape and figure paintings that express the image of Gosan where Lin Bu stayed changed to portrait figure paintings that emphasize the appearance of Lin Bu’sperson as much as possible by omitting the surrounding environment and leaving only minimal medium symbols of him. At the time, historical figure paintings in Japanese society gave meaning to a place as decoration or played roles as an objects of worship and were used in places close to daily life.
