Art of the Korean Renaissance, 1400–1600 presents a compelling account of the vast artistic and cultural accomplishments in Korea during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Many of the exquisite paintings, ceramics, metalware, lacquerware, and books featured in this book have never before been seen in the United States. These works of art were produced under Korea's revolutionary last dynasty, the Joseon (1392– 1910), which set out to create a political, social, and cultural renewal following a period of Mongol domination and internal regression. Neo-Confucian values and Buddhist principles influenced Korean artistic expression during this period; however, royals and elite patrons supported secular art beyond the Confucian world. This is the first English- language publication that explores the Joseon dynasty and the cultural impact it had in Korean history.
