Description - Korean Art from the Gompertz and Other Collections in the Fitzwilliam Museum: A Complete Catalogue by Yong-i Yun

The collection of Korean art in the Fitzwilliam Museum is one of the finest outside the Far East, containing rich holdings of early unglazed ceramics, celadon stonewares of the Koryo dynasty, punch'ong wares and porcelains of the Choson dynasty as well as items in glass, jade, bronze, brass, lacquer and wood. This catalogue, compiled by Yun Yong-i and edited by Regina Krahl, supplies detailed information on the artefacts and posits a dating system which will be useful to students and collectors of Korean art worldwide. The introductions to each type of ware represent important contributions to the subject. Essays on Korean culture and the technology of Korean ceramics set the works of art in historical context. The finest examples of each type of ware are represented in 32 pages of colour illustrations and over 450 black and white photographs show varied views of the specimens.
