The exhibition is designed to celebrate the 70th anniversary of establishing diplomatic ties between Russia and China, and promises to introduce Chinese culture, unlock the tricks of Chinese writing, and strike with sophisticated Chinese calligraphy. The list of exhibitors features leading calligraphers and artists of contemporary China, representing the entire spectrum of styles, from classic to avant-garde, as well as all Chinese provinces, from the north to the south. For the first time one exhibition in Russia will showcase masterpieces never previously exhibited in Russia or anywhere else in the world.
The display feature cards from the early 20th century, the pre-revolutionary period, the 1930s, the World War II era, and others. A special section will be devoted to a unique collection of New Year greeting cards sent by famous Chinese people to their Russian comrades from 1949 to 1953, when our two countries enjoyed a strong friendship. The postcards are the courtesy of director of St. Petersburg museum "The Old New Year", Vladislav Dmitriyev.
