A woodblock print made under Kangxi of Qing. This painting was modeled after Binpungchilwolpyeon of 『Shigyeong』 which Nusuk dedicated to Gojong in Southern Song period. The reason behind producing this was to make the emperor understand the difficulty of farmers and silkworm rearing. The picture is very elaborate and delicate and western perspective is applied. It seems to have been introduced to Joseon in early 18th Century and has influenced late Joseon genre painting that the Chinese character in the print is portrayed as a Joseon person, and thus shows the trend of being Koreanized.

  • Korean caption: 남송 대 누숙(樓璹)이 고종(高宗)에게 바치기 위해 『시경(詩經)』의 빈풍칠월편(豳風七月篇)을 모범으로 하여 그린 것을 청 강희제(康熙帝) 때 다시 만든 판화. 제왕으로 하여금 노동하는 농부와 누에치는 여인의 어려움을 이해시키기 위해 제작된 것이다. 정교하고 섬세하면서도 서양화의 원근법이 적용된 것이 특징이다. 18세기 전반기 조선에 전해진 것으로 추정되며, 조선후기 풍속화에도 영향을 주어 판화 속의 중국 인물이 조선후기의 인물로 그려지는 한국화(韓國化) 경향을 나타내기도 했다.
