ARTH 32.01 Two Thousand Years of Korean Painting

This course explores Korea’s long painting tradition from the earliest petroglyphs to the 21st century. We will look at Goguryeo mural paintings, Goryeo Buddhist Paintings, and Joseon landscapes, portraits, genre, and folk paintings, as well as Korea’s modern and contemporary art, including North Korean propaganda posters. We will ask questions like: How have Korean paintings reflected changes in religious beliefs, political idealogy, and material culture? What quintessential aesthetica values (if any) are found in Korean painting? How much does contemporary “global” Korean painting contain the legacy of the Korean painting tradition?

No previous knowledge of Korean art is required.
