"The Beauty of Old Korean Paintings", originally written in Korean under the subtitle "A History and An Appreciation of Traditional Korean Paintings", began as an illustrated lecture by Lee Dongju (1917-1997), the eminent Korean author and art historian and Professor Emeritus at the Seoul National University. The book follows the format of his slide lecture and brings into English this passionate connoisseur's acute, entertaining and at times uncomfortably frank observations on the subject of Korean art and artists. "The Beauty of Old Korean Paintings" offers a wealth of information readily cross-referenced to Korean, Chinese and Japanese sources while preserving Professor Lee's authentic voice and the value of his original work as an authoritative text on Korean painting. True to Professor Lee's intent, the book evokes interest in the whole gamut of Korean art as well as Korean artists, aesthetics and history.
