Painting Korea

Goguryeo gave us a magnificent wall paintings in the burial chambers of stone, discovered in South Manchuria – in Tango where to 427 G. was the capital, as well as the frescoes of a later period near Pyongyang.

The painting was applied on the primer or straw with clay or directly on the granite surface of the walls. First applied the black outline, then the drawing surface was painted. The paints contained lead oxide and the adhesive. The black outline was worked again.
