NEW YORK: The Winter Olympics are being watched for many things: sporting excellence, of course, but also for headway on the U.S.-North Korea nuclear standoff and even tentative rapprochements between Seoul and Pyongyang. In New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is commemorating the games with an exhibition of Korean art, much of it displayed for the first time in the United States, and which introduces an acclaimed Korean natural wonder to a new audience.The exhibition features nearly 30 paintings depicting what are known as the Diamond Mountains.Titled "Diamond Mountains: Travel and Nostalgia in Korean Art," the show highlight is an early 18th-century album from the National Museum of Korea by Jeong Seon, who revolutionized Korean painting by breaking with conventional imagery and depicting native scenery.
