Saturday University: From the Land of the Morning Calm

This event is in the past
Sat May 14, 10 - 11:30 am
Seattle Asian Art Museum Capitol Hill (Seattle)
This is an in-person event

In the early- to mid-20th century, Korea was often referred to in the United States as "The Land of the Morning Calm," a lyrical term derived from a loose translation of Joseon, the country's 1392-1910 dynasty. Art from Korea in this time period is often misinterpreted as simply a "variation" on Chinese and Japanese art—in truth, it has a uniquely defined aesthetic and cultural role. Robert Mowry, curator emeritus at Harvard Art Museums and senior consultant at Christie’s, will share his reflections on Korean art collecting in the United States.
