Greeting of John Beyrle, the ambassador of the United States of America to the Russian Federation
I am very happy to introduce a special issue of the Tretyakov Gallery Magazine to both Russian and American audiences.
The American Embassy in Moscow enthusiastically supported the initiative, which aims to acquaint the general public with American art and the legacy of prominent American artists, many of whom have Russian roots.
I am confident that the publication of this special issue of the Tretyakov Gallery Magazine is a step towards the strengthening of cultural ties between the people of Russia and the United States of America.
On the eve of the New Year, I would like to take this opportunity and congratulate all the readers of Tretyakov Gallery Magazine and wish you health and happiness in the upcoming 2011!
Ambassador of the United States of America to the Russian Federation
