Talk: From the Kilns to the Grave: Pottery from the Three Kingdoms Period of Korea

2 pm | Sat, September 23, 2017
Brown Auditorium

This talk will explore the formation and development of pottery art and technology during the Three Kingdoms period (57 BCE–CE 668), a key period in the history of Korean art which saw the emergence of the first centralized states in the Korean peninsula. The diverse range of shapes and decors (incised, stamped, sculptured) attests to different ceramic traditions, some of which bespeak contacts and exchanges with neighboring China and Japan.

Ariane Perrin is an art historian specializing in Korean art and archaeology and a research associate of the Centre for Studies on China, Korea and Japan in France.  Her research focuses on funerary art of the Three Kingdoms period and the Han period tombs of the Lelang commandery located in what is now North Korea.
