Crow Collection of Asian Art
$10 for Friends of the Crow Collection, $20 for the public
Reflecting the strength of the Crow Collection’s Korean works of art, this lecture will provide a historical and cultural context on the ceramic culture of Korea dating back to the late 1500s. Specifically, Jinyoung will discuss the significant developments in Japanese ceramic ware that were generated as an unforeseen result of the Imjin War (nicknamed the “Pottery War”) between Korea and Japan of the 1590s.
In this lecture, Jinyoung will illustrate how technology interacted with aesthetics in the early development of East Asian porcelain ceramics by providing several examples of ceramics from this significant period and examining the works closely with regard to their political, social, and cultural contexts.
