Kim Hong-do

 

(pseudonyms, Tan Won, Tangu, Sanung, Komyon Kosa, Chopchwy Ong). Born 1760; died 1820. Korean painter.

Kim Hong-do’s portraits, landscapes, and genre scenes were executed in india ink and watercolor. Based on the national school of painting, they also reflected tendencies in European art to a certain extent. Kim Hong-do is distinguished by his graphic skills and keen sense of observation. His best works include The Waterfall of the Nine Dragons (State Central Fine Arts Museum, Pyongyang) and the two albums Landscapes Enlivened by People, Animals, and Birds (particularly the pages “Plowing” and “Blacksmiths”).
