Catalogue Description: From "Korean Art Collection in the Brooklyn Museum" catalogue: Han Ik-mo (1703-?) was a late Joseon official who served as prime minister in 1772. His penname was Jeonggyeon and his posthumous name was Munsuk. Although the exact date of his death is unknown, a portrait of him painted when he was seventy-nine testifies to the fact that he enjoyed a long life. This painting depicts him as a young man wearing a red robe and a black silk hat. The contours of the folded robe, especially the hook-shaped folds, indicate that this painting was executed in the typical portrait style of the late eighteenth century.
