Remembering an artist


Lee Jung-seob’s (1916-56) five famous “Bull” paintings hang in a row at the Deoksu Palace branch of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in central Seoul. It is rare to see the paintings in one place, museum officials say, because the “Bull” series and other important works by Lee, who died young and in poverty and only gained recognition posthumously, are now dispersed across various collections. For the large-scale retrospective of Lee, which runs through Oct. 3, the museum gathered 200 paintings and drawings and 100 artifacts. For details, visit [MOON SO-YOUNG]
