The study of art history as a whole or part of the theory of art theory, it exists to study and solve the root of art in the art creation. One-sidedness is an inevitable existence in the study of art history. We cannot deny its truth, but we cannot use it as an investigation. Therefore, we regard external research and internal research as two major positions in the study of art history, and study the relationship between human natural life and social life.
