My daughter Jennifer and I attended the opening of the new exhibition of Korean art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art over the weekend. This offers a large and quite wonderful collection of all sort of objects produced in Korea during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). The exhibition continues until May 26. For anyone interested in a family outing that is both educational and just plain fun, this is the place to go.
Jennifer took this photo of us standing in front of an enormous 17th century tapestry now hanging in the museum's Great Hall; it has never before traveled outside Korea.
