By Seunghye Sun
Catalogue to the exhibition, "The Lure of Painted Poetry," this book highlights the work of Japanese and Korean artists who fused the genres of art and poetry by reinterpreting themes of classical Chinese poetry in their own painting, calligraphy, and decorative arts. Curator Seunghye Sun of the Cleveland Museum of Art has chosen pieces from the Museum's renowned Asian Art collection, presenting a beautiful array of Japanese and Korean works, some of which have never been exhibited or published before.
