Hi Gary,

Its Jay again. I also saw this beautiful painting of a North Korean landscape painting. The link is below of the painting.

Can you tell me if you will be getting any more painting of this scenery? I would like this exact painting.

Let me know and thanks again.

Regards,

Jay Lee

I'm afraid the end of that era has come and passed. All my contacts on the North Korean border have disappeared. I have tried and failed to make contact with others in the Chinese-Korean underground.

It was a valiant effort to obtain artwork that I would make no profit on (after paying the smuggler, a commission to the underground, bribe the North Korean guards not to shoot the smuggler while he swam across the river to China, and paying the artist, there was nothing left for profit).

I don't know what the future holds for getting any Korean artwork like this. In South Korea, I've learned the paintings I was selling for $100+ were going for $500+ so I guess I was doing something wrong (profit-wise).

Sorry I can't help you on that.

-Gary.

Thank you for your help Gary. I guess I just missed out on it.

If there is anything, would you mind sending me an email to let me know.

Thank you.

Jay
