Chao once said that the requisite to a good tiger painting is to manifest both the innocence and ferociousness of the animal. He took this as an illustration to make a comparison of eastern and western paintings. He concluded that Chinese painting is superior in the use of lucid ink and colour as well as the obscure presence of light. In this way the true verve and character of the tiger could be communicated more effectively.
