The comprehensive catalogue accompanying the exhibit at the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice features an internationally famous Korean artist whose work has received little attention in Germany until now. Yun Hyong-keun was one of the most prominent abstract monochromists. He belongs to a generation of artists whose influence over art has been crucial since the end of the Korean War. In the 1970s Yun Hyong-keun joined the Dansaekhwa movement, a leading group of Korean artists whose monochromatic paintings intensively explored the effects and nature of color. This volume is a cornucopia of artistic and personal materials from the estate of Yun Hyong-keun, which have provided profound insight into the life and work of one of the twentieth century’s most important Korean artists.

YUN HYONG-KEUN (1928-2007) was deeply affected by his experiences during the Korean War. Under the difficult circumstances of the war and the postwar era he developed a special sense of art that is expressed in his thoroughly sensitive, spiritual paintings.
