백동자도 (百童子圖) 를 통해 본 조선후기의 아동인식 ( 2 )
The Perception of Children in the Late Chosun Period as Depicted in Baekdongjado
Hee Rhee Baeck
This study explores the concept of children as perceived in the late Chosun period by analyzing there sets of paintings on the panel screen, the Baekdongjado (the paintings of one hundred children at play). Although these paintings originated in China, there were many differences between Chinese and Korean paintings. Results of the analysis show that children were recognized as important members of the family by the late Chosun period, that parents hoped for many children, possibly sons, to fulfill each family, and that childhood meant the period of the youngster.
