Although overshadowed by China, the 'Land of the Morning Calm' escaped the invasions that disrupted its larger neighbour, preserving its refined tradition of Confucian art. This fully illustrated catalogue of an exhibition at the Musee Guimet in Paris draws on private collections to present more than 150 paintings, ceramics, fans and items of furniture, many unknown to the public, and explores the distinctive Korean culture that created these exquisite depictions of plants, animals and landscapes.
