Further Biographical Context for Cai Zhenyuan

Born in 1897, Cai Zhenyuan was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first major Post-impressionism movement in the early years of the twentieth century is generally considered to be the Fauves, a group for whom intense, other-worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of painting, and who counted Henri Matisse among their numbers. In Paris at the same time, a young Pablo Picasso painted his renowned Blue and Rose periods. By the end of the decade, along with Georges Braque, he had developed the first fracturing of illustrative reality with Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be considered to be among the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas began to take hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop at an astonishing rate in the work of designers such as Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline amongst all modes of creative arts. Most, if not all, of the significant art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their crucial founding principles in the incredible diversity of art produced during this time.
