Patricia Frick. Consummate Craftsmanship: Korean Lacquer Art at the Museum fur Lackkunst, Munster
The exhibition ‘Korean Lacquer Art – Aesthetic Perfection’ (‘Die Lackkunst Koreas – Ästhetik in Vollendung’; 28 October 2012-27 January 2013) will be the first such exhibition in the West. On display will be a selection of lacquerwork with mother-of-pearl inlay (najeon chilgi) dating from the Goryeo (918-1392) and the Joseon (1392-1910) dynasty. These masterpieces, from Korean, Japanese and European collections, illustrate the highly sophisticated decorative techniques used in Korean lacquerwork.
