Art and Culture in Premodern Korea|
Spring 2009 not offered
This historical survey considers the major artistic traditions of Korean art and of the cultural context that shaped them. Beginning with the prehistoric period and continuing to the 19th century, the course will consider the arts of Korea, especially Buddhist sculpture, ceramics, and painting, in terms of both peninsular history and, where relevant, historical and cultural developments in China and Japan.
