During the Han and Tang Dynasties, the exchange of handicraft culture between China and Persia significantly promoted economic development, advanced diplomatic relations, improved the material and cultural life of the people, enriched their spiritual enjoyment, and held a critical position in the history of East-West handicraft cultural exchange. The methods of image composition in Chinese painting and Persian miniature painting differ, yet there are mutual influences. The images reflect the national uniqueness and cultural diversity of both countries due to the differences in functional space. This paper explores the communication between China and Persia in painting images during the Han and Tang Dynasties by examining three aspects: composition, space concept, and style of Chinese painting and Persian detailed photos. It reveals the mutual influences formed in exploring stylization and individuation while maintaining the distinctive characteristics of the art communication path.
