Donggwoldo

Donggwoldo is a representative Korean painting of the early 19th century, depicting the two royal palaces and Changgyeonggung during the Joseon Dynasty. Donggwol is an alternative name of Changdeokgung, located to the East of the main royal palace of the dynasty, Gyeongbokgung. However, the picture includes Changgyeonggung, an adjacent palace to the former. In 2012, the painting was used as the basis of a restoration project for the Buyongjeong pavilion in the rear garden of the Changdeokgung; the picture from a bird's-eye view perspective captures the whole scape of the palaces surrounded by mountains and hills from a right top angle. Two versions of the same picture have survived to the present. Donggwoldo is designated as the 249th National Treasure of South Korea. Donggwoldo is on a folding screen made of paper and wood; the creation date is presumed to be between 1826 and 1830 given the fact that it depicts the "Jeonsa", installed in the 26th year of King Sunjo, "Gyeongbokjeon", demolished in the 30th year of the same king.

The author is unknown but presumed to be a royal painter from Dohwaseo, the governmental office in charge of paintings during the period. The itself is regarded more as a significant source for the research on Korean royal palaces rather than for its artistic values. Since the is visually more detailed than other similar paintings, such as Donggwoldohyeong and Gunggwolji, it serves well as historical evidence and provides many clues to studies on building arrangements and features during that period.
