With more than 200 colour and archival images, this handy volume presents the full scope of the museums' Korean art collections. First, it traces the formation of the Freer Gallery of Art's collection of 540 Korean objects, reversing the usual chronological order by following the path of the museum founder, Charles Lang Freer, who began in the 1890s by collecting Joseon-period ceramics. The book then describes how the Freer's Korean collection has continued to grow since the 1960s and presents the late twentieth-century Korean art that the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery has acquired as part of its commitment to representing modern and contemporary art movements in Asia.
