"A striking new addition to the field. Belongs alongside similar histories of the overseas development of other Asian countries’ major Asian art collections."--Jinyoung Jin, associate director of cultural programs, Stony Brook University
"Advances recent investigations in both the history of collecting traditional, modern, and contemporary Korean art outside the country of origin and the aesthetic, iconographic, and cultural dimensions of Korean art in its local, regional, and international contexts."--Richard A. Born, senior curator emeritus, Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago
A monumental addition to the understudied field of Korean art, this brilliantly illustrated volume assembles the perspectives of art historians, critics, curators, and museum directors from major universities and museums around the world to trace the varied and dynamic experiences of Korean art acquisitions over the past century.
Arts of Korea reveals patterns of collection-building and display strategies across time and place, discusses the role of the private collector in the growth of institutional holdings, and addresses issues of provenance and authenticity. Contributors also focus on artists, art genres, and previously neglected art periods, highlighting new research coming out of Korea and Japan and speaking to specific challenges in introducing Korean art to an international audience. Arts of Korea provides a much-needed historical and global overview of collection building, presentation, and interpretation of Korean art.
