Korea: Neolithic – Present (8 000 BC–2014)

 

Mondays, 24 February – 31 March 2014

  The second part of this term is dedicated to the Arts of Korea. Through the detailed study of early tomb architecture and pictorial art, the relationship between Korean art and that of China and Japan will be explored. The advent of Buddhism sparked a distinctly Korean style of stone sculpture and religious art in paintings and manuscripts.   Life in later Korea is explored through traditional architecture and interiors, highlighting issues of gender and hierachies in society. Lacquer, furniture and textiles display a decorative repertoire and artistry rooted in Korean culture. The pictorial arts will also be examined in the context of literati paintings and genre painting.   Finally, Korean ceramics will be examined from the Koryo to the present. Long collected and admired within Asia, Korean ceramics were prized in the West by ceramicists such as Bernard Leach who valued their simple aesthetic. The V&A collection of stoneware and porcelains will form the mainstay of our study from historical pieces to those produced today.
