This painting illustrates one of many games played in Korea during the 1800s. Three girls in traditional Korean attire can be seen playing noon-ssa-mae-gi or blind man’s buff (눈싸매기). The girl in the right who is blindfolded is suel-lae (술래), the blind man or the “it” person. Some of the lead white paint has blackened over time. A title for the piece and an artist seal appear at the top right. There are 22 other watercolor paintings in the collection illustrating Korean games and rendered by the same artist, Gisan (기산) of Choryang, Korea.
