Five Buddhas, a Korean Buddhist painting of exceptional beauty and rarity, was discovered in tatters in an antique shop in Seoul in the 1970s. Portlander Robert Mattielli rescued it from certain destruction and had it lovingly restored. Internationally renowned scholars Robert Buswell of UCLA and Maya Stiller of the University of Kansas unpack the cultural context of this remarkable work, on the eve of its repatriation to Korea.
This symposium is sponsored by the Korean Cultural Heritage Administration and the Mildred Schnitzer Asian Art Lecture Fund.
