Comparing Classical Chinese and European painting

Why do the classical Chinese painters paint so much bamboo, and why are classical European artists so obsessed with the naked human body? Why does the Chinese artist complete his painting within five minutes, as if not wanting to put any effort into it, and why does the European artist breaks his line into so many small sections, as if he could not draw a long line? These are questions that will find an answer in the talk.
