Lee Ungno continued to lead a prolific life as an artist even when he was imprisoned following the Dongbaengnim (i.e. East Berlin) Incident, during which time he produced a wealth of sculptural works, prints, and paintings using whatever materials were available to him. However, the lack of materials and limited space in which to work made it impossible for him to produce works of significant size, resulting in the production of only smaller works. The largest of these were only (toile de) 50 to 60 in size. The work shown here is one of the finest, and also one of the largest, that Lee produced during this period.
