The Painter & Artist made a biography of Cao where he said :
"The figure that he drew was perfectly molded, he adhered to the laws of chiaroscuro, to the retouching. But more began with his work for the drawing of this country a schematic concision from which we could cite numerous examples. When they were designated "the father of the Argentine cartoon" they affirmed a truth and we are sure that they did not refer so much to their fruitful work, as to their quality of that work"
"first it was Cao although his art had been developed in this nation. Castelao, our greatest humorist, thought so much and often conversations had what pleasure he was looking for as a child first in Argentina and then in Galicia the drawings of Cao. Certainly Castelao knew Cao much more than the drawings. Perhaps also many of his articles, essays and the thought that about Galicia Cao sustained his battle in the Galician collectivity."
