Catalogue Description:
From "Korean Art Collection in the Brooklyn Museum" catalogue: The painting depicts a scholar riding in a boat and looking up at the fallen plum blossoms on a cliff. The poem inscribed on the painting reads, "Riding on a boat, passing the stream where Ziling once passed, I realized that the plum blossom has already fallen. I sigh and write this song, as I am like those fallen flowers." However, the mannered style of the painting does not successfully carry the feeling of the poem. Given the presence of the seal "Seokha," this painting is probably a work of Kim U-beom. There is another painter, Jeong Jin-cheol, whose pen name is also Seokha, but he specialized in decorative flower and bird paintings. The painting is most like an early work of Kim U-beom. From Accession Card: Landscape Scholar in rustic boat beside high cliff with rocky shore beyond. Four-line poem with signature and two seals above. Condition: very minor stains throughout.
