Art of the Korean Renaissance: 1400-1600, by the Metropolitan Museum of Art

The lauded exhibition is concise with quality pieces that truly reflect the era. The pieces are integrated in this catalog with concise and brief, yet comprehensive histories of the kingships and mores of this period in approachable and at times compelling narratives by historians and art historians. An exceptional collection that is enhanced by this exceptional book.
