    "In one of his articles about Kharitonov's art, the professor and art scholar Mikhail Sokolov calls Kharitonov on the most significant Russian artists of the second half of the 20th century, because Kharitonov reveals in his art the thoughts and hopes of a whole generation which preserved its spiritual fortitude through the years of political stagnation... According to the artist himself, his art, both technically and philosophically, rests on three pillars: Byzantine and Old Russian icon painting, and the Old Russian tradition of embroidery using precious stones, pearls and beads... Alexander Kharitonov's art, both demotic and classic at the same time, is an inexhaustible meditation in colour on the deathless spirit of the Russian people" (Tatiana Sokolova, "Alexander Kharitonov. A miracle is always inconspicuous," in The Tretyakov Gallery Magazine, no. 1, 2008 (18), pp. 92-93).
