Crane with Autumn Grass: Gallery Label - Current


Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Yang Ki-hun was a member of the Royal Academy of Painting at the end of the Choson dynasty. Despite the official nature of his position, however, his style reflects the untrammeled spirt of a literati artist. He is best known for his paintings of birds and plants, which he rendered in a delightfully abbreviated and naive style. The inscription, also by Yang, suggests the sudden changing of seasons:

Like a dream,

the wind blows from the south

bringing cold rain.
