what’s the difference between japanese and chinese paintings?


The one thing that usually stands out to me is that old Japanese paintings seem to be more minimalist in nature – fewer colors used and greater use of empty space. Chinese Paintings can also be this way, but I notice that it’s more predominant in older Japanese art. Also Japanese tend to use those goofy Kabuki-style faces…just saying

    Japanese paintings come from Japan and Chinese paintings come from China. Stylistically they can look very similar.
