Kang Collection Korean Art’s March 20-28 2010 exhibition, “Harmony and Nature: Auspicious Symbols in Korean Art,” explores the rich, fascinating layers of meaning behind the floral and faunal symbols depicted in late Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) decorative paintings and folding screens. Drawing from both court and folk-painting traditions, the exhibition uncovers the symbolism and societal roles of such popular painting genres as flowers and birds, lotus and carp, and Ten Symbols of Long Life
