 조선 후기 풍속화를 통해 본 아동인식 정진,백혜리 The Perception of Children in Folk Paintings of the Late Chosun Period Jin Jeong,Hae Rhee Baeck Abstract This study of 54 folk paintings of the late chosen period analyzed the perception of children of that period. Three types of childrens activities were identified: children playing, children working hard, and children studying hard. Only boys participated in these activities along with their parents or grandparents: girls were relegated to the background, along the fence. Conclusions were that people recognized play as a natural part of childhood. childrens lives were defined by social status: children of the yangban (upper) class had to study hard for their familys honor while children of the lower classes had to labor for their familys livelihood. Children were recognized as members of a family and a community. Boys were considered important because they were heirs to the family fortune: girls were to be supportive of men and family.
