This is a collection of paintings by Shin Yun-bok of commoners engaging in everyday activities against the backdrop of a landscape. It is believed that they were originally intended as elements of a folding screen. The four paintings included in the collection are entitled A Scholar on a Mule, A Summer Scene, Passing the Time in the Shade of a Tree, and A Woman Asking for Directions. The Chinese characters on A Scholar on a Mule suggest that these are scenes of a hot summer’s day in 1813.
