The dynasty that ruled Korea for five centuries presided over an era of unparalleled artistry, in which aesthetic rigour combined with sensitivity to materials to produce objects of great refinement. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at museums in Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Houston, this catalogue features hundreds of paintings, woodcarvings, ceramics and textiles. The accompanying essays explore these artistic traditions, the history of the Joseon dynasty, and the Confucian philosophy that underpinned the culture.
