Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Fully illustrated in colour, here is the first introduction in English to one of Korea's outstanding cultural assets - the banchado (painting of the order of guests in a royal event) commemorating the 1795 royal procession to Hwaseong (Gyeonggi Province). It is a fine example of the meticulous record-keeping (uigwe) and the skills of the court painters at that time. Comprising some 1800 people, the eight-day procession was organized by King Jeongjo in order to visit the tomb of his father and to celebrate his mother's sixtieth birthday. The author provides a full analysis of the context, planning, execution and significance of the event.
