The Comparison and Development of Color Between East and West

Xuehui Du


Take a panoramic view of the painter’s application of color, almost everyone strengthens his self-cultivation positively. Chinese ancient ancestors established “the five elements” as the symbol of color to the space, and it’s a kind of presentation of spontaneous philosophy. Chinese painting values verve highly, while Western painting lionizes are more about similarity in shape. But the appearance of modernism in the end of 19 century makes them close, in the mean time the art between east and west had achieved a considerable unification which means there is no border between the arts.
