Please come and join us for a lecture on Korean Art with Dr. Noh an expert in Korean paintings. The lecture is entitled “Korean Ksitigarbha Painting”. Korea has experienced great cultural achievements in the field of painting. This field has developed continuously in the course of history. Korean Buddhist painting has left the unique beautiful paintings which are recognized worldwide, developing its own style. The style of Ksitigarbha painting developed in East Asia has been spread over an entire cultural area, but regional characteristics have developed which are so obvious that it is possible to speak of an especially Korean style. Korean Ksitigarbha paintings distinguish themselves clearly from those in China and Japan. The exceptional creativity and an exceptional aesthetic feeling turn out often to be characteristic of Korean Ksitigarbha painting. The difference to the art of neighbour countries resides above all in the way how Korean artists have interpreted and applied the styles which they have encountered. My intention is to highlight the uniqueness of Korean Ksitigarbha painting compared to East Asian countries. Coffee and biscuits will be provided. We anticipate that this event will be very popular so it is important that you sign up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
