Korean Chests: Treasures of the Yi Dynasty

Michael Wickman

Of the many arts of Korea, the wooden chests of the Yi dynasty are the most sought after in the West.

Their superb workmanship and elegant design are clearly visible. Less well known is the lifestyle of the Confucian families which commissioned them. In this volume, the panoply of the five hundred years of Korea's last dynasty is brought alive. Descriptions of the furniture made for the ladies secluded in the anbang and for their husbands' scholarly pursuits are also an introduction ot the yangban aristocracy of the Land of the Morning Calm.
