> DESCRIPTION

In Grand Style: Celebrations in Korean Art explores the importance and cultural significance of celebrations during Korea’s Joseon dynasty.

Much of today’s Korean culture derives from the traditions of the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910), when observations of milestones—birthdays, weddings, promotions—followed elaborate protocols. In Grand Style explores the art of celebrations during this era, featuring over 100 exquisite artworks from Korea including paintings of royal banquets, a royal throne, a king’s palanquin, and other national treasures on view in the U.S. for the first time.
