    A pair of recently installed Japanese folding screens featuring processions of a Korean envoy and a Japanese territorial lord illustrates a diplomatic phenomenon: scholars have suggested that Korean envoys helped foster the transmission of literati painting styles between China, Korea, and Japan in the 17th and 18th centuries. Focusing on these screens and the literati paintings in the current installation, this gallery talk will discuss Korean embassies in Edo period Japan and the artistic exchanges ensuing from these celebrated sojourns.
