Abstract

In 1952 the All-China Federation of Literary and Arts Circles dispatched a group of artists and writers to the front of the Korean War, the conflict between North and South Korea. Among the group visiting Korea was the artist Gu Yuan, then a member of the national committee of the federation. Gu Yuan made a number of sketches and drawings in the battlefield and designed several woodprints based on these drawings after returning to Beijing.
