Crow Collection of Asian Art presents "Earthly Splendor: Korean Ceramics from the Collection" closing day
This exhibition pairs outstanding examples of contemporary and historical Korean ceramics from the museum’s permanent collection to highlight the material, aesthetic, stylistic and technical developments of them throughout history.
The museum’s Korean art collection consists of works ranging from stone sculptures to a small selection of paintings, furniture, chests, boxes, bronze mirrors and other examples of decorative art. The majority, however, are ceramics. Of these ceramics, the museum is fortunate to have a rich variety of stoneware from the early Three Kingdoms period (57 BCE-935 CE), celadon wares from the Goryeo dynasty (918-1392), porcelains from the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910), as well as works by contemporary ceramicists.
The breadth of the museum’s permanent collection allows for direct comparison of these aesthetic transformations across time.
