“Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty,” the largest-ever exhibition of Korean art from its longest-running dynasty, is open at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art through Sept. 28.

The collection features a timeline of the 518-year dynasty’s history with 150 pieces of art, many of them Korean national treasures on loan from the National Museum of Korea.

Standouts of the exhibition include “Penies,” a 10-fold screen from the late 19th century, the iconic six-fold screen “Sun, Moon, and Five Peaks” and the “Moon Jar,” a porcelain vase from the 18th century admired by art lovers as one of the best examples of modernism in Joseon art.

Divided into five themes — the king and his court, Joseon society, ancestral rituals and Confucian values, continuity and change in Joseon Buddhism and Joseon in modern times — the exhibit shows painted screens, statues, ceramics, scrolls, books, costumes and ritual wares.

The exhibition, sponsored by The Korea Times, was co-organized by LACMA, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the NMK.
