Exposition :Splendors of Korean Art

The Met Fifth Avenue

New York, NY 10028

Jusqu’au 17 septembre 2017

 

This year-long presentation brings to The Met masterpieces from the National Museum of Korea. The exhibition offers stellar examples of Korean art in areas not often represented in American collections as well as treasured highlights from The Met collection. Organized chronologically from the Late Bronze Age to the 21st century, the exhibition conveys the broad framework of Korean art history.

Among the objects reflecting key genres and themes of Korean art are strikingly modern-looking pots and glittering jewelry from ancient burial sites; exquisite gilded Buddhist sculpture from the seventh through the seventeenth century; sophisticated celadon and metalwork of the Goryeo dynasty; porcelain with delightful and distinctively Korean designs; and paintings on diverse subjects from the Joseon and early modern periods.

The exhibition is made possible in part by The Met’s collaboration with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea and the National Museum of Korea.
