For some 2000 years, the educated elites of Japan and Korea learned classical Chinese poetry and adopted the Confucian aesthetic that informed it. Illustrated with almost 100 works from the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art, this catalogue explores the ways in which these poems were reflected in the decorative arts, including landscape and figure painting, ornamental screens, ceramics, metalwork, lacquerware and calligraphy, and the cultural links between the nations of Southeast Asia.
