Korea’s last dynasty, Joseon (1392-1910), lasted over 500 years despite
Mongol, Japanese, and Manchu invasions. From its beginning Joseon rulers
adopted Neo-Confucianism as the dynasty’s guiding philosophy. At the core
of Neo-Confucian teachings were the ethical standards and moral values
commonly known as the “Three Bonds and Five Relationships” (*Samgang Oryun*).
The virtues advocated in the “Three Bonds and Five Relationships”
profoundly influenced the behaviors and attitudes of the people. Pictorial
themes such as King Jeongjo’s Journey to Hwaseong (*Hwaseong Neungheang-do*),
Scholar’s Accoutrements (*Chaekgeori*), and Painting of Eight Ideographs (
*Munja-do*) will be discussed to illustrate the extent to which the
Confucian ideal of ethical codes had permeated every aspect of Joseon
society including its visual culture.
