Abstract

In the context of contemporary globalization, art, as a medium that crosses cultural boundaries, is becoming an important tool for people to communicate and express across geographical and language restrictions. The diversity of visual expressions and aesthetic concepts in different cultural backgrounds brings unique charm and richness to artistic creation. China and Europe, as two civilizations with long histories and profound cultural traditions, have rich creations and expressions in the field of art, and each has formed a unique iconography system. By comparing the cultural contrast and expression differences between China and Europe in the field of iconography, we can not only deeply explore the cultural connotation behind art, but also understand the aesthetic concepts of different cultures and their impact on visual language.This article aims to deeply explore the comparison and differences between Chinese and European iconography from a cross-cultural perspective.
