This notable catalogue - the first English-language publication on the subject - highlights the art of the early period of Korea's revolutionary Joseon dynasty. The Joseon rulers replaced the Buddhist establishment and re-created a Korean society informed on every level by Neo-Confucian ideals. They supported the production of innovative secular art inspired by past traditions, both native and from the broader Confucian world. Yet despite official policies, court-sponsored Buddhist art endured, contributing to the rich complexity of the early Joseon culture. The exquisite paintings, porcelain and other ceramics, metalware, and lacquerware featured in the book are drawn from the holdings of major Korean and Japanese museums, the collection of the Metropolitan Museum and other U.S. collections; and private collections. Many of the works have never been seen in the United States.
A comprehensive guide to giving well to family members Giving is at the core of family life–and with current law allowing up to $5,120,000 in tax-free gifts, at least through December 2012, the ultra-affluent are faced with the task of giving at perhaps largest scale in history. Beyond the tax saving and wealth management implications, giving to family members opens up a slew of thorny questions, the biggest of which is, «How do I prepare recipients of such large gifts?» With that question and others in mind, Hughes, Massenzio, and Whitaker have written The Cycle of the Gift in three main parts: «The Who of Giving,» «The How of Giving,» and «The What and Why of Giving.» The first part focuses on the people most deeply involved in family giving, especially the recipients and givers (parents, grandparents, spouses, trustees). The second part, «The How of Giving,» addresses the delicate balance of givers who want to maintain some level of control and recipients who want some level of freedom in accepting and growing their gifts. The final part, «The What and Why of Giving» describes various types of gifts, from money to business interests to values and rituals. The authors also introduce their «family bank» concept as a model that combines loans, trusts, and outright gifts. It embodies a framework and set of practices for long-term family growth. Even families without great wealth–or those who have already made large gifts to their children and grandchilren–can benefit from the human wisdom and practical advice found in The Cycle of the Gift.
