Fowler OutSpoken Lecture - Korean Ceramics: The Great Tradition
by Robert D. Mowry
Robert D. Mowry, Alan J. Dworsky Curator of Chinese Art at the Harvard Art Museums, surveys the history of Korean ceramics from the early historic period through the nineteenth century. Mowry will emphasize characteristics and innovations that are uniquely Korean (such as the invention of the inlay technique of ceramic decoration), while also exploring relationships between Korean ceramics and Chinese and Japanese ceramics. Mowry will also touch on relationships between Korean ceramics and works of art in other media—from gold, silver, and bronze to lacquer and painting. ;
