PAINTING ; Kim Hong-do, Dancing Boy, 1780. Better known by his pen name Danwon (1745–c. 1806), he was a Korean painter of the Joseon period. Danwon is known as the first Korean painter to extensively portray Korean daily life, in a manner analogous to the Dutch Masters. Because of this, his paintings today are valued almost as much for the insight they shed on daily life as for their inherent aesthetic value.
