Yuefenpai painting is a type of calendar poster art genre that was prevalent in Shanghai during the early 20th Century and the pre-Communist era. These posters were influenced by Western advertisements and were successful in advertising and giving recognition to the artists. At the same times, the calendar girls portrayed in these commercial pictures are known by all to best describe the changing images of 'modern women' during that time.

In the early years of the Repubic of China, the representative artist of calendar poster is Zhou Muqiao. Being well-versed in Chinese traditional painting, Zhou has created a great number of popular works. He also absorbed some techniques of western painting to form unusual visual effects. Most of his works tend to be Beijing genre paintings instead of modern scenes in Shanghai.
