From September 1, 2022 (Thursday), an exhibition of white porcelain and ink paintings said to have been favored by the literati of the Joseon Dynasty will be held at the Koryo Museum of Art.
Literati were intellectuals who practiced Confucianism and enjoyed literature, calligraphy, and painting. During the Joseon Dynasty, literati who had passed an examination known as the "Geokyong" played a central role in politics.
White porcelain and ink painting, which became popular during the same period, attracted the literati of the time with their seemingly simple yet profound artistry. White porcelain, which is the same "white" but has delicate differences, and ink painting, which freely expresses landscapes and flowers using shades of black ink. Let's sharpen our senses and experience the richness of these works.
