Modern Sketch 時代漫畫 was one of the most popular of the nearly 20 illustrated humour and satire magazines published in Shanghai in the 1920s and 1930s. It was a monthly periodical that ran from January 1934 through to June 1937, the golden period of cartoon and graphic art in China. Its staff included many of the original members of Shanghai Manhua (see previous post). Modern Sketch combined Chinese styles with western art forms such as Fauvism, Cubism, Expressionism, Dadaism, and Surrealism (perhaps playing a role in the introduction of modern art to Chinese art history).
