French galley owner’s dream in China

"My Chinese customers like classic works better. They want something that they can compare to reality, something that brings feeling to real life," president of France Art Gallery Cyril Lanskoy said.

Lanskoy, 45, took over his parents' gallery in France 20 years ago. The gallery is a big collection of well-known artists' work from France and Russia, and Lanskoy began to build up his social network with artists from different countries when he was young. But he always had a curiosity for China, the far-away country in the East.

"China was like a mystery for us, because it is far away from Europe, far away from Russia," Lanskoy said.

As a result of China's rapid economic development, Lanskoy began to notice a growing number of Chinese collectors in France.
