In 1944 An Ho was introduced to the artist Pu Ru who took her as his student and protégée. The guiding principles of Pu Ru's teaching laid in a belief that the practice of Chinese painting should put as much emphasis on an artist's personal character as the quality of the work itself. An Ho studied painting techniques that had been forgotten over the centuries, revitalised an art form that had always been considered the pinnacle of Chinese art, and became one of the leading living practitioners of these ancient artistic styles.
