"One hundred years ago, the Peabody Essex Museum became the first institution in America to collect the arts of Korea. This came about as Korea, for the first time in its history, was entering into relations with the nations of the Western world, and the United States was expanding its interests in the Pacific. Most of the art and artifacts acquired by the Peabody Essex Museum were created for use in Korean homes and ceremonies. These included the full range of media: paintings, ceramics, textiles, metalwares, lacquer, wood, and paper. Today, these objects constitute an important resource documenting the achievements of late Chosun Dynasty visual arts". Dan L. Monroe, Executive Director, from the Foreword.
