Umber and Blue: The Art of Yun Hyong-keun

A major retrospective of the Dansaekhwa (‘Korean monochrome’) master Yun Hyong- keun (1928–2007) is on view at Palazzo Fortuny in Venice until November this year. Likened to ‘a person from the Joseon dynasty’, Yun received a Japanese-style education and graduated from high school aged seventeen, just as Korea was gaining independence from Japan in 1945. As Kim Inhye reveals in her article, Yun drew much of his inspiration from traditional master calligraphers, such as Kim Jeonghui, and dedicated his life to realizing the traditional aesthetics of the Joseon dynasty: simple, artless, authentic and organic.
