【Abstract】

The Sochuga 草虫画 is a genre of painting which draws the familiar motifs of flowers and small insects seen in everyday life. Due to the auspicious connotation, such as success in life and longevity, these motifs have been traditionally depicted in Korea and Japan.

Piling (毘陵), the old name of Chang-zhou (常州, Jiangsu) in China was famous for the paintings of flowers and insects. The paintings of the Piling school had an influence on paintings of Korea and Japan. This seminar explores how the paintings of Piling School were accepted and transformed in the Joseon dynasty Korea through the comparison of the existing paintings of this kind.
