Family of deceased artist files suit over museum's claims

The family of Korean artist Chun Kyung-ja (1924-2015) has filed a suit against the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), furthering a controversy about the authenticity of one of her works.

Chun’s family said that the museum has abused the painter’s human rights through its long-held claims that the “Beautiful Woman” in the museum’s collection is one of Chun’s artworks, an assertion which was rebutted by the painter.
