Streams and Mountains Without End by Yi In-mun

Yi Inmun (1745-1821), also known as Yuchun, was a court painter of the late Joseon Dynasty, primarily of landscapes artist. He also held a military position in the court. Perhaps his best-known work is a silk scroll entitled Gangsan mujindo (Streams and Mountains Without End; hangul: 강산무진도; hanja: ), which is displayed in the National Museum of Korea in Seoul.

In 1968, the American composer Alan Hovhaness (who had visited South Korea in 1963) composed a chamber symphony inspired by Yi's painting, entitled Mountains and Rivers Without End.
