Professor Kendall Brown compares painted and printed images of Korea by Elizabeth Keith with work by western contemporaries—including Paul Jacoulet, and Lilian Miller—to explain Keith's "classical" approach to Korean culture. Professor Brown will also present Keith's written descriptions of her Korean subjects, which, along with her visual depictions, reveal an empathy with Koreans and their culture and poetic take on a "vanishing Korea." Professor Brown recently served as Curator of Collections, Exhibitions and Programs, at the Pacific Asia Museum, and is currently working on several projects, including one on western female artists in Japan and Korea in the early twentieth century that will include works by Keith, Helen Hyde, Nertha Lum, and Lilian Miller.
