Treasures from Korea: Art through 5000 Years, by Roderick Whitfield

Organized chronologically and preceded by a timeline of history, this British Museum exhibition catalog presents a broad collection of ceramics, gold work, and from the later dynasty, paintings. The narrative is archeological discovery and cultural anthropology, and is detailed and enlightening. An extensive compilation that enriches the breadth of understanding about Korean artifacts and art.
