Further Biographical Context for Cai Pingfan
Born in 1891, Cai Pingfan was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The dynamic development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first delving into Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and groups of artists across the world evolved different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, began to practice important theories concerning Abstraction.

These revolutionary styles of art were demanding and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
