Dr. Chin-Sung Chang
Murphy Lecture Series:
The City of Great Peace, an early nineteenth-century painting, now in the National Museum of Korea, is a spectacular eight-panel screen showing various images of social stability and economic prosperity. This talk examines how images of good governance functioned in late Joseon Korea and what inspired the production of such images. The significance of The City of Great Peace will be discussed within the larger context of East Asian painting, highlighting the relationship between crisis and visual politics.
