Comparative Study on Cultural DNA of Chinese and Western Sketch



In this paper, according to the analects of “Lunyu”, we try to interpret in concept of sketch. Depending on the clue of the development process for sketch, we contrasted western sketch with Chinese in order to analyze completely different points in their cultural DNA. Based on the conclusion, we still reflect Chinese modern sketch and put forward the idea that we should observe, think and explore for innovation in the field of sketch based on our own cultural DNA, eliminating the distractions and impetuous feeling in study of culture.
