“We bring to China the best part of the collection that I have collected over the past 20 years. In the 1990s, I began to buy works of art that I liked, which mostly attracted me emotionally. These were the first steps towards a large collection. Now it has more than 500 works of Belarusian authors. I suppose that the exhibition will be remembered by the Chinese audience for the high level of the Belarusian academic school of painting as well as for the modern themes of the works"
