A renowned Chinese artist Zhang Shisen has produced a series of greeting cards for the exhibition of the New Year cards, which was held in the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy between December 28, 2018, and February 7, 2019, with flying colours. Mr. Shisen dedicated one of the cards to the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and the Museum forwarded it to the President directly. We hope this greeting message from Zhang Shisen will contribute to the development of relationships between Russia and China!
