Until recently, the study and analysis of Asian lacquer had been confined to Chinese and Japanese objects. As a result of the collaboration between the Getty and the Asian Art Museum, samples collected for analysis and inclusion in the study now include Korean lacquerware. The Asian Art Museum is a forerunner in the field because of its expertise in Korean art and active collecting of Korean mother-of-pearl lacquerware, resulting in the largest collection in the United States. The conservation of the four Korean lacquer objects that will be introduced in this symposium is the result of the museum’s continual efforts to research and preserve Korean lacquerware. This symposium was made possible by the generous support of the Overseas Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation.

    Program: Looking at Mother-of-Pearl Lacquerware from Korea

    In this symposium, you will learn about the expansion of our knowledge by previously underutilized analytical techniques such as Pyrolysis-gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry and how the resulting data and interpretation can be organized and analyzed using rapidly developing technology and software tools. This process allows for the creation of a database that can help make sense of the multitude of information gathered through these initiatives. This reflects the efforts of the Asian Art Museum's conservation team to better understand the art historical and scientific significance behind Korean mother-ofpearl lacquer.
