Wang was a retreating artist to Taiwan. He learned with Xu Beihong, Li Keran, Wu Zuoren, Li Ku-Tsan successively; his works merged Western techniques with traditional Chinese painting, established an austere style of his own which was concise and powerful and turned a new page of Chinese arts. Horses were a subject he especially exceled in. To Xu Beihong’s difference, each leg of his horse was composed and finished by a single line. Xu’s horse put emphasis on accurate depiction of muscle and bone; Wang’s horse tended to be more impressionistic, it demonstrated his spirit in roughness and among that, brought imagination.
