the korean language is not an accessory
You think you know everything. But in reality. You know nothing.
Shin Yun-bok, better known by his pen name Hyewon, (born 1758) was a Korean painter of the Joseon Dynasty. He is known for his realistic depictions of daily life in his time. His genre paintings are distinctly erotic, a fact which contributed to his expulsion from the royal painting institute, Dohwaseo. Painting was frequently a hereditary occupation in the Joseon period, and Hyewon’s father and grandfather had both been court painters. Together with Danwon and the later painter Owon, Hyewon is remembered today as one of the “Three Wons” of Joseon-period painting.
His ink landscape paintings used clear light strokes in a method similar to that of Yoon Jehong (윤제홍), the pioneer in new style painting of the late Joseon era. He is also known to not have used the traditional method of leaving empty space in his paintings, usually filling the whole canvas. Although he placed short verse and his seal on most of his paintings, none indicate the date nor time of their creation and it is difficult to define the progression of his painting style. As one of the pillars of genre painting in the Joseon era, he influenced many other painters afterwards.
