A Study on Femineity and Swept-back Style Hair Represented in Sin Yoon-bok`s Painting: Centering on the Author`s Painting
Jeong Hee Kim
This study aims to examine femineity represented in Hyewon Sin Yoon-bo-k`s (1758-1813) painting and women`s swept-back style hair through looking at social conditions when Gache style hair was prohibited in the periods of King Yongjo and King Jeongjo, and represent classical beauty of women in my paintings. Then it analysed historical background of unique femineity in the late Joseon Period, hair style of the time, and Hyewon`s paintings , , and which described internal psychological conditions and feelings through parody and wit through bibliographical review and reinterpreted them for their reproduction into a new beauty in my paintings. The swept-back style hair represented through Giseng in Hyewon`s painting was managed by the government through prohibition of Gache, which was very rare in the history of the world. However, Hyewon encouraged and respected splendor and active femineity of women who did not surrender to suppressing conditions of society through reproducing swept-back style hair in his paintings. However, as this study was confined to a painting book titled , further research on femineity represented in his other genre paintings are needed. Also, we should have opportunities to look at diversity of beauty art with being aware that the status of beauty art should be raised as the Eighth Art by introducing humanistic review and painting in a new direction.
