Yi Chŏng

▪ Korean painter
also called T'anŭm (Korean: “Ocean Hermit”)
born 1541, Korea

      painter who was one of the most popular 16th-century Korean artists.

      The great-great-grandson of King Sejong (1397–1450), Yi is said to have personified the ideal Korean aristocrat. He is as famous for his regal and generous disposition and his scholarly tastes as he is for his painting, and he is also well known as a poet and calligrapher. A master of the traditional styles, he especially excelled in monochrome painting of bamboo; he liked the bamboo, he said, because he felt it to be unyielding and yet graceful.
