The CMA’s exhibition Chaekgeori: Pleasure of Possessions in Korean Painted Screens, on view through November 5, showcases a unique type of Korean still-life painting called chaekgeori (pronounced check-oh-ree), translated as “books and things.” These paintings depict bookshelves lined with artfully arranged scholarly objects, exotic luxuries, symbolic flowers, and gourmet delicacies.
