Cambridge University Press, 2006 - Art - 357 pages
The collection of Korean art in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, is one of the finest outside the Far East, containing a representative range of ceramics from the fifth to the twentieth century and items in various other materials. Although Korea's ceramics equalled China's in quality and technique, they are far less well known. This richly illustrated catalogue, compiled by Yun Yong-i and edited by Regina Krahl, provides comprehensive introductions to the subject, detailed information on each object, and background studies on Korean culture and ceramic technology.
