It seems to be a quite frequent event nowadays: a work by one of Korea’s most popular and most expensive modern artists comes up for sale in a US saleroom. And so it is that another Park Soo-keun comes under the hammer at Christie’s New York tomorrow, with an estimated price tag of up to $400,000 – a price that was achieved by another work by the same artist in Amesbury, Massachusetts almost a year ago.

The sale includes a wide range of other Korean paintings and artefacts ancient and modern: two moon jars (one Joseon dynasty, one by contemporary potter Park Young-sook), plus plenty of other pieces of precious porcelain, furniture and paintings: 37 lots in all, in a sale of mainly Japanese work.
