Before the Renaissance, painting served religion, and the expression of feelings in paintings was implicit or even forbidden. With the development of different periods, the subject described by the artist in the work has gradually changed from the object world to the spiritual world, and the expression of emotion in the work is also more in-depth. In the process of the development of contemporary art, the exploration of emotion in works is also more diverse. This article will take the exploration of emotion in contemporary art as the starting point, and sort out the contemporary art exhibition in Paris Museum of Modern Art. Take the exhibits as an example to demonstrate.
