Fan Tchunpi or Fang Junbi (Chinese: 方君璧; 1898–1986), was a Chinese artist known for her brush-and-ink paintings in the traditional guóhuà style. Trained in Western painting techniques while living in France, her work is known for its combination of European and Chinese formal elements. Called 'one of the most important and prolific Chinese artists of the modern era', her work has been the subject of retrospective exhibitions at the Hood Museum of Art, the Musée Cernuschi, and the Fung Ping Shan Museum.
