Lin Fengmian (林風眠, 1900-1991) is a Chinese painter and art educator who sought to blend the best of both Eastern and Western art.
The son of a painter, Lin Fengmian learned traditional Chinese painting techniques as a child. After graduating from high school, he moved to France, where he studied European painting at the Dijon Art College and the Ècole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 1922 his oil painting The Autumn was exhibited at the prestigious Salon d'Automne in Paris. The following year his Chinese ink paintings were again shown at the Salon d'Automne, and 42 of his paintings were displayed in the Exhibition of Chinese Ancient and Modern Art at Strasbourg, France.
