This event has ended.

These forty-five exquisite works of art illustrate the height of artistic production under court and elite patronage during the first 200 years of the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910), a time of extraordinary cultural achievements. The diverse yet cohesive group of secular and religious paintings, porcelain, sculpture, lacquer, and metalwork highlights the aesthetics, conventions, and innovations of a Neo-Confucian elite and its artistic milieu. This is the first in a series of international loan exhibitions at the Museum focusing on significant periods in Korean art history.
