The Folk Painting installment of the Korean Art Book series presents an in-depth survey of a unique genre of Korean painting that flourished during the 18th to the early 20th centuries.

While reflecting Chinese influences and themes prominet in early literati painting, Korean folk paintings represent distinctly Korean techniques, composition, subject matter, and style.
