Description The subject of grapevine rendered in ink was popular among literati painters throughout the Choson period. Artists who won fame as painters of grapevine include Sim Saimdang (1504–1551), Huang Chip–chung (b.1533), and Hong Suju (1642–1704). While earlier paintings of the subject are mostly in the form of album leaves, ink-grape paintings of the nineteenth century are usually larger in size, sometimes forming a folding screen of six or eight panels. Squirrels are occasionally depicted on the branches of the vine, as in this example.
