scroll painting of Gaeamsa exhibited at the National Museum of Korea

scroll painting of Gaeamsa(temple located at Buan, Jeonla Bukdo), which is exhibited at the National Museum of Korea, Yongsan-gu, Seoul

A 4

Two days ago I visited the National Museum of Korea. In winter season I go often there to appreciate lots of national treasures and special exhibition. I could see the above scroll painting with 1,317 cm height and 868 cm width. Though it looked very hard to imitate I tried to do on A 4 paper. It's one of national treasure, no. 1269. Color was brilliant in spite of that it was produced on 1749. Because such kind of scroll paintings were so big to hang inside the temple it was used for the praying outside the temple building. For the height of the painting it was hung in the open space through two floors. It looked so statios that I stayed for long in front of the painting.

며칠 전 국립 중앙 박물관을 방문하였어요. 겨울이면 추위를 피할 겸 보물들을 감상하려 자주 갑니다. 마침 박물관에서 순차적으로 전시해주는 괘불 그림을 볼수 있었어요. 이번 작품이 아홉전째 것이라는군요. 지난 번에는 흥국사 괘불을 그려본 적이 있던터라 다시 도전하여보았습니다. 역시나 어려웠지만 흉내만이라도 내어 본것이 만족스러웠구요. 이런 저런 국보급 보물들을 만나는 것이 감사하고 소중한 기회였습니다.
