The first comprehensive survey in the United States devoted to the art of the celebrated Joseon dynasty (1392–1910), an era that profoundly shaped the culture of Korea in ways that continue to resonate today, will open at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the only East Coast venue for this unprecedented exhibition. Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392–1910 contains more than 150 works, among them National Treasures that have never left Korea before. The works range from screen paintings and calligraphy created for the courts to scenes that vividly and colorfully illustrate life across the social classes.
