Published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name at the Asian Civilisations Museum, the book explores the exuberant culture of Korea’s Joseon dynasty (1392–1897) through lavish costumes, painted screens, ceramics, scrolls, furnishings, and ritual wares. The objects, all borrowed from National Museums in Korea, include luxuries of the royal court, elegant furnishings for scholar-officials, and images and objects for spiritual sustenance. This profusely illustrated catalogue provides a perfect introduction to Joseon culture and art.
