This tiger was painting by Chinese artist Gao Qifeng (1889-1933). Gao Qifeng was taught to paint by his older brother, Gao Jianfu, before going to Japan to study under Raisho Tanaka. Qifeng is known as one of the three masters of the Lingnan School - a style of painting specific to the Guangdong or Lingnan region of China. This style was seen as revolutionary and innovative compared to traditional Chinese painting, described as an eclectic fusion of the Han Chinese and Western style. Gao Qifeng's work is recognised for its combining of elements of Chinese painting, Japanese pleinair painting, and Western techniques resulting in a unique personal style.
