Zhao Rongbin, born in Beijing in 1949, joined Hu Shuangxu to paint tigers at a young age and then studied landscapes from Qin Zhongwen. In the 1980s, Zhao Rongbin had contacts with famous artists such as He Haixia, Guan Songfang, Wang Xuetao, Huang Zhou, etc., and had close contacts with the descendants of Baishi, all of which laid a good foundation for his future artistic creation, identification, and collection of paintings.
Zhao Rongbin advocates the independent coexistence of Chinese painting and Western painting. In his later years, he focused on the inheritance of traditional Chinese painting techniques. His tiger painting works are very skillful. Qi Liangchi once gave him a high evaluation: “Mr. The master’s method is truly passed down. In addition, Mr.’s talent is outstanding, it is already blue. Mr. Guan’s painting of tigers is super elegant, and the brush and ink are super elegant, and they are really juxtaposed and refreshing; when it comes to complementing the scenery, it is even better.” In addition, He Haixia, Huang Yongyu, Qin Zhongwen, and other masters also Zhao Rongbin once inscribed a hundred characters on the tiger picture painted by Zhao Rongbin, or used it as a backdrop. It can be seen that Zhao Rongbin’s skill in painting tigers is profound and has been recognized by all masters.
