Pacific Asia Museum says…

Pacific Asia Museum is pleased to present the special exhibition Auspicious Beauty: Korean Folk Painting.

Korean folk painting during the Joseon dynasty reveals some of the essential values of Korean society and usually illustrates auspicious subjects such as scholars' items, birds and flowers, and mythical animals.  Auspicious Beauty will illustrate these themes and discuss the patrons who commissioned the works.  The exhibition will present a selection from the museum's collection, including a recent acquisition of an eight-panel screen of flowers, and select objects from local collectors.
