In the 1950s, Paris played a great part in the shift within Korean art circles. At critical moments, it provided from afar new models to follow, while also welcoming many Korean artists keen to acquire Westren training or work in a new setting. In this second respect, notably, France was fortunate in attracting some of the founders of contemporary art in Korea and some of the 20th century's most important artists . 
The musée Cernuschi continues to play a  special role in these exchanges. For over fifty years, it has maintained close links with Lee Ungno (1904-1989) and the Academy of Oriental Painting he founded in Paris in 1964; and for decades now, it has been organising exhibitions by contemporary Korean painters and ceramists. It is natural then, that the Musée Cernuschi should be inviting its visitors to learn more about the artistic kinship between Korea and France and introducing them to one of Asia's most youthful and dynamic art scenes.
