The collection of Korean Art is one of the smaller collections and consists chiefly of ceramics. The section is temporarily closed.

The collection of Korean ceramics include

  • the period of the Three Kingdoms (first century B.C. to the seventh century A.D.)
  • the period of Unified Silla (668-935)
  • the Koryo Dynasty (918-1392)
  • the Choson Dynasty (1392-1910).

The highly desirable Sanggam stoneware (celadon with inlay work of white and black clay) from the Koryo Dynasty is only one example of the particular identity of Korean art, set between the Chinese and Japanese traditions.
