Sitting Dharma by Korea's Renowned Buddhist Monk Painter Seok Jeong Sunim (1928-2012). An excellent example of why Seok Jeong is widely regarded as Korea's master of Zen Buddhist art. Dharma's lower body is rendered in a single brushstroke, his upper body in just three strokes. The calligraphy here is also masterful. Ink on paper. Mounted on silk in a beautiful traditional Korean wood frame. Frame: 37 x 19 inches, 94 x 48 cm. Painting: 26 x 13 inches, 67 x 33 cm. The recent exhibition of Seok Jeong Sunim's work at the Zen Buddhist Temple in New York City was the most highly-attended exhibition ever presented by the Korean Art Society. At that exhibition, Seok Jeong Sunim's works of similar size and quality sold for multiples of the prices we are asking here.
