Jar decorated with flowers and insects


Not on view

In its form, color, and style of decoration, this handsome jar is representative of blue-and-white porcelain produced at court-patronized kilns in eighteenth-century Korea. The minimalism of the painted design and the abundance of white space are among the features that distinguish Korean blue-and-white porcelain from its contemporary equivalents in China, Japan, and Europe.
