The Virtuous Image: Korean Painting and Calligraphy from the Late Choson Dynasty, September 14-December 15. Korean scholar or "literati" painting flourished during the Choson dynasty (1392-1910), when members of the wealthy scholar-gentry class and civil officials created scroll paintings and albums of lyrical poetry, idealized landscapes, austere bamboo, and other refined subjects. In the first public presentation of the Smart Museum's collection of Korean scholar and Buddhist paintings and calligraphy, items date from the 18th-century apogee of Korean court culture to royal rule's tumultuous end in the early 20th century.
