Description
Korea's modern art started with the introduction of western painting at the beginning of the century. Though it served as a form of resistance during Japan's colonial rule of Korea, it is now firmly taking root as our own art, our traditional art is that it expresses traditional Korean naturalism in a new way, breaking away ideality by adopting realistic approaches.

The Modern Art Series production, which started last year, will continue over a few year period. The following four are the third in the series:

4. Woman in a Ski Suit.
This work by Son Ung-seng is the painting that won the highest honors at the 19th Chosun Art Exhibition in 1940. The oil paintings of the time, which were following the Japanese fashion, were realistic, but the reality represented, tended to be blunted.
