Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_0300155166
Bold, sophisticated, engaging, and startlingly modern, Buncheong ceramics emerged as a distinct Korean art form in the 15th and 16th centuries, only to be eclipsed on its native ground for more than 400 years by the overwhelming demand for porcelain. Elements from the Buncheong idiom were later revived in Japan, where its spare yet sensual aesthetic was much admired and where descendants of Korean potters lived and worked.
This innovative study features 60 masterpieces from the renowned Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, as well as objects from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and presents current scholarship on Buncheong's history, manufacture, use, and overall significance. The book illustrates why this historical art form continues to resonate with Korean and Japanese ceramists working today and with contemporary viewers worldwide.
Über den Autor: Soyoung Lee is Associate Curator, Department of Asian Art, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Seung-chang Jeon is Chief Curator at the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea.
