Deoksugung Palace is famous for Korean traditional palace with history in busiest downtown Seoul. The palace sits alongside a series of western style buildings that add to the uniqueness of the surrounding scenery. A fascinating mix of traditional Korean and Western-style neoclassical structures and nearby areas are very popular for visitors for the beauty and tranquility. Inside the palace, the museum building, connected with beautiful bright colored neoclassical-style Seokjojeon(석조전), was constructed in 1938. It's now the MMCA (National Museum of Modern Contemporary Art) Deoksugung,with a collection of permanent and temporary contemporary art. 
Last week, a sunny spring day, I visited the museum and enjoyed the exhibition of the 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Korean Modern Masters, Pen Varlen(변월룡 1916~90). Pen,Russian-Korean artist, is an important figure in Soviet socialist realism art. I appreciated his impressive masterpieces and sketched in and outside the museum with picturesque surroundings.

덕수궁 미술관은 도심 궁궐속의 아담한 서양식 건축입니다.
서울 대표적인 명소이자 쾌적한 고궁 분위기와  편리한 접근성으로
시민들과 관광객들에게 낯익는 국립현대미술관 분관으로서
명화 전시회를 통해 예술정신을 심어주는 아름다운 샘터입니다.
