Greeting of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the People's Republic of China Dr. Andrei Denisov
Since its first issue in 2003, the “Tretyakov Gallery” Magazine has proved to be a valuable source of knowledge for both professionals and art enthusiasts. The primary mission of the magazine is to build cultural bridges between nations. Along with regular issues, it presents special publications as a part of its project “On the Crossroads of Cultures”.
The Russo-Chinese relationship is at a historically high point, and we define it as “Comprehensive Partnership and Strategic Cooperation”. Humanitarian ties and cultural contacts provide a social foundation for bilateral cooperation, bring together the people of Russia and China, and enhance our mutual understanding.
The people of China love and value Russian art. Traditional Chinese culture is highly popular in Russia as well.
“China - Russia: On the Crossroads of Cultures”, the special issue of the “Tretyakov Gallery” Magazine, covers Russia’s fine art treasure-house, the State Tretyakov Gallery, and the largest in China National Art Museum, as well as other leading arts organizations of the two countries. I am confident that this publication will become a bright and significant achievement of Russo-Chinese cultural exchanges.
Dr. Andrei Denisov
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the People’s Republic of China
