Standing Dharma by Korea's Renowned Buddhist Monk Painter Seok Jeong Sunim (1928-2012). This is an excellent example of why Seok Jeong is widely regarded as Korea's master of Zen Buddhist art. Dharma's body and robe is rendered in just four powerful and inspired brushstrokes. The calligraphy here is also masterful. Ink on paper. Mounted on a beautiful silk scroll. Silk Mount: 77.5 x 18 inches, 197 x 45.5 cm; Painting: 50 x 13 inches, 127 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. The fourth photo here shows a wall label from that exhibition with a price of $3500 for a similar Dharma painting. That painting is half the size of the Seok Jeong painting we are offering here.
