View on Amazon

Examining the significant developments in Korean art from the Neolithic period to the 19th century, this volume focuses on ceramics, Buddhist sculpture, painting, metalwork and the decorative arts. Published to coincide with the opening of a permanent Arts of Korea Gallery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the book presents colour plates selected on the basis of their place in the historical development of Korean art, their manifestation of important changes in technique and style, and their representation of Korean aesthetics. The texts set the works in political, social and cultural context.
