ABSTRACT

Biwon-pa is the name of a painting group comprising Cheon Chilbong, Byun Siji, and Son Eungsung, who painted landscape paintings of Korean traditional palaces during the 1960s. Cheon persistently pursued landscape paintings through his artistic life, and his stylistic property lies on the painter’s voluntariness of perception. His use of exaggerated bright colors can be also thought to stem from the locality discourse which began during the Japanese colonial period. The significance of Cheon’s landscape paintings has parallels with eighteenth-century landscape painting in England. We might call his paintings “Korean picturesque” in that the artist sought to express the value of Korea in the process of modernization.
