Aechun, Shin Myeongyeon(靄春 申命衍, 1808-1886) was literati painter of the Joseon Dynasty. He was the son of Shin Wi, the representative scholar-gentlemen painter and poet of these days and remained in government service through life after passing the milltary service examination. He created a lot of paintings of such subject matters as flowers and birds(花鳥畵), landscape(山水畵), the Four Gentlemen(四君子) and human figures(人物畵), enriching the art circles of the later Joseon dynasty by including new styles of painting actively. This plum painting is meaningful because it is left with the article that Jin Nong(金農)'s painting was imitated.
