About the Authors
  • Including a representative range of ceramics from the fifth to the twentieth century and items in various other materials, the collection of Korean art in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, is one of the finest outside of the Far East. Although Korea's ceramics equal China's in quality and technique, they are far less known. Compiled by Yun Yong-i and edited by Regina Krahl, this richly illustrated catalog provides detailed information on each object, as well as background studies on Korean culture and ceramic technology.

    • Catalogue of rich and relatively unknown collection of Korean art
    • Lavishly illustrated with colour plates and black and white photographs
    • Essays on different types of ware by leading experts in Korean art
