|Description||Peonies, a symbol of wealth and honor, are a favorite motif in Korean art. Many screens featuring these flowers were produced at the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910) court, as they were a crucial element in rituals and ceremonies.
With its bold designs and striking graphic stylization, this 1948 example closely follows the style of peony screens made during the Joseon period, and was possibly produced by the last generation of Joseon court painters.
