Modern Korean Ink Painting promotes a general understanding of how Korean art and the times it represented were related. The book starts with the dawn of the modern age in Korean art (1876-1910), which looks at the legacy of court painting and the last of the literati painters. Next the book moves on to the modern art era in Korea (1920-1940). Finally, it examines the forces at work during the perpetuation of nationalism, which lasted well into the 1980s.
