“... inside the Tretyakov Gallery there is an understanding of quality and even such a thing as a "masterpiece". Nevertheless, I repeat, it was important for us to show that history did not stop. And here we go back to where we started — there are museums that take the right position, realizing that it is necessary to show the artists of today." (Irina Gorlova, ArtGuide).
