Arts of KoreaUser Review - Book Verdict
The first comprehensive recording of Korean masterworks in two decades, this exhibition catalog presents a compelling and thorough survey of the key developments in the history of Korean art. Published in conjunction with the opening of the Metropolitan Museum's new permanent gallery of Korean art, it draws the finest examples from four major areas: ceramics, Buddhist sculpture, painting, and metalwork and decorative arts from the Neolithic period to the 19th century. Essays by leading scholars reflect the latest scholarship and examine stylistic characteristics and technical innovations in the political, social, and cultural context, particularly the Korean peninsula's relationship and interchanges with China and Japan. This landmark publication serves as an important introduction for Westerners to Korea's artistic achievements. Essential for academic and public libraries with a collection on Asian arts.--Lucia S. Chen, N.Y.P.L.
