Xinhua, March 22, 2014 Adjust font size:

The China National Academy of Painting (CNAP) has hired seven artists with international reputations to promote Chinese art.

The seven foreign artists are Claude Abeille, chairman of the Academie des Beaux-Arts; architect Paul Andreu; Remy Aron, president of Societe des Artistes Francais; sculptor Jean Cardot; painter Pierre Carron; Erik Desmazieres of the etching section of the Academie des Beaux-Arts; and Jason Zhixin Sun from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Yang Xiaoyang, president of CNAP, said the artists have global influence and will promote CNAP overseas through exhibitions and cultural exchanges in their home countries.

Chinese fine arts will carry forward their own traditions, but also absorb and learn from the art of other countries, Yang said.
