Dwelling by a Mountain Stream On View NOW!

Check out the Korean hanging scroll “Dwelling by a Mountain Stream” on view NOW in gallery 236, part of a number of new works on view!

In this magnificent painting, a scholar-hermit in a red robe guides viewers into the mountains where he dwells. Acquired as part of the 2015 bequest of George Gund III, this painting offers a rare glimpse into the early landscape painting tradition of the Joseon period that combines the heroic vision of monumental landscape with a poetic narrative of intimate human stories.
