Illuminating the flowering of Korean culture during a formative period in the modern history of the country, this scholarly catalogue features fine illustrations and individual discussions of 126 diverse religious and secular works drawn from Korean collections, including paintings, furniture, porcelain, lacquerware, scrolls and other objects. Four substantial essays review social, political and artistic developments in 18th-century Korea, delineate the principal themes and institutions of Korean court art, discuss the emergence of the "true-view" style of landscape painting, and examine the ceremonial arts associated with the country's dual Buddhist and Neo-Confucian traditions.
