Unfolding Beauty and Beyond

  • St. Louis Art Museum (map)

While a folding screen is one of the popular painting formats in Korea, screen paintings functioned not only as fine artworks, but also provided many other practical roles in the daily life of the Joseon dynasty. 

Hyunsoo Woo, the Maxine and Howard Lewis curator of Korean art,Philadelphia Museum of Art will speak on the meanings and symbolism hidden behind their visual charm. Relevant Chinese and Japanese works will serve as comparisons providing distinctive characteristics of these closely related cultures. 

Presented in collaboration with the Gateway Korea Foundation of Saint Louis.
