Members of The Korea Society were invited to an exclusive private tour of an exhibition that showcased works from renowned private, American, Asian-art collections. Exquisite pieces such as porcelain bottle vases, hanging scrolls, and panel screens from the Silla Dynasty (5th century) through the Joseon Dynasty (19th century) were presented. The highlight of the exhibition was “A Blue-and-white Porcelain Jar with Autumn Grasses” from the first half of the 18th century, one of the finest delicately embellished Korean porcelain jars.
The tour was led by Dr. Young Yang Chung, Chair of the Program Committee at The Korea Society, and Takaaki Murakami, Head of Sale at Christie’s.
