Manuscript, by Yi Hŏn-myŏng, et.al., The original manuscript dated 1908.
Prose and verse by relatives and friends in 1848 in commemoration of the sixtieth anniversary of the marriage of Yi Yo-hwa and his wife. This is an album of painting and calligraphy commemorating the "diamond" wedding anniversary of Yi Hang-mu (李學懋) and his wife. Yohwa (潦花) is the name of Yi Hang-mu's residence and his ho (號). The album consists of the paintings that depict the party celebrating the diamond wedding anniversary on February 28th, 1848, and the congratulatory prose and verses written by their son, Yi Hŏn-myŏng (李憲明, 1792-?) and others. Among the figures who contributed a literary composition were Cho Su-sam (趙秀三, 1762-1849), one of the representative literary figures of the time, and Yi Man-yong (李晚用, 1792-?), grandson of famous poet Yi Pong-hwan (李鳳煥, ?-1770). The painting depicts the party scenes taking place in a large mansion, which is slightly different from the typical style of the 18th century due to the way the large close-up party scenes are rendered. In the painting, Yi Hang-mu (李學懋) and his wife are painted larger than other family members. The elegant banquet taking place in the outer as well as the inner quarters of the mansion is a variation of the then popular genre painting, The Illustrious Life of Guo Fenyang (郭汾陽), rather than the depiction of the actual banquet. The Illustrious Life of Guo Fenyang (郭汾陽) refers to the set of paintings that depict the banquet given by Guo Ziyi (郭子儀, 697-781) in his luxurious mansion. This figure from the Chinese Tang dynasty is the symbol of worldly success in Asia.
