Product description


"A compelling look at the history of Korean art and the events that shaped it. . . . Profusely illustrated."--ARLIS/NA Reviews

"The willingness to explore and to challenge conventions has continued among South Korean artists, who now make a vibrant contribution to the international art scene. Horlyck is good at placing these developments within their social and political context. . . . [This book] offers a rounded assessment of developments from a Western perspective."--Asian Affairs

"This rigorously researched volume thoroughly fleshes out the historical, social, and political landscape that fostered the creation of art in Korea over the last hundred years. . . . This book is a welcome addition to the few publications on the subject, as Horlyck develops a full art-historical picture of Korea in the twentieth century. The illustrations are good quality and varied, the glossary of Korean terms and artists is second-to-none, and the bibliography is equally rich. Current scholarship on speci-fic artists and interpretations of certain movements or practices are discussed and in stopping short of expressing her own opinions, Horlyck neatly avoids viewing the art of Korea through a 'Western lens.'"--Burlington Magazine

"Korean Art from the 19th Century to the Present is one of the most significant and most accessible surveys of Korean art to date. It is a bonus that the volume has a rich collection of photographs including rare images. The volume is a fascinating book that surveys Korean modern and contemporary art, focusing on carefully selected events, artworks, and artists closely related to the massive social, political, and economic changes in Korea pre-, during, and post-colonialization; the division of the nation; and the consequent modernization of the South."--European Journal of Korean Studies
