From the Philadelphia Museum of Art website: "Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910 celebrates the artistic achievements of the Joseon dynasty, a line of twenty-seven monarchs that ruled the Korean peninsula for more than five hundred years and left a substantial legacy for modern Korea. This is the first full-scale American exhibition to be devoted to art of the Joseon dynasty."
"Comprised of more than 150 works drawn primarily from the National Museum of Korea’s collection and supplemented by objects from public and private collections, Treasures from Korea presents American audiences with a rare opportunity to see some of Korea’s artistic masterpieces, including a number designated as national treasures. The exhibition includes interactive displays of select objects, a free audio tour, and a family guide. In addition, a broad range of programs such as film screenings, family celebrations, performances, lectures, and dining events are offered throughout the run of the exhibition."
