ABSTRACT

Han Sang-Jin(韓相鎭) is the significant figure in the field of Aesthetics and Art History during the Liberation era. In that time, He has taught theory of art and art histories to the public as a member of ‘Research Society of Art(美術硏究會)’. He had published The Development of Art in the Foreign Countries: Introduction of History of Western Art for the Student(1949) and translated Herbert Read's Art and Society(1949) and wrote some art critics on the contemporary art. After the Korean War(1950-1953), He has worked in various fields of art in the North Korea before he dead in 1963. As a Art Historian, Critics and Educators, Han's main concern was the making systematic connection of Art and Society. He wanted to describe art histories respecting the universal order(system) as well as personality of artist. During the liberation era, He has tried to solve this problem by accepting Vladimir Friche's systematic approach on the connection art and society on the one hand, and Herbert Read's theory on the role of artist in the sociology of Art on the other hand. But after late 1950's in the North Korea, He has chose another way of connecting art and society by accepting views of Social Realism.
