Festschrift in Honor of Hana Seifertová on the Occasion of Her 90th Birthday

On 12 May, the well-known and highly respected Prague art historian and founding member of CODART, Hana Seifertová celebrated her 90th birthday. On this occasion, she was honored by the National Gallery in Prague with an Album Amicorum as a special edition of the Bulletin of the National Gallery in Prague. The festive presentation, which was attended by numerous colleagues from the Czech Republic and abroad, took place on 7 May in Hana’s long-time domain, the Sternberg Palace of the National Gallery in Prague.

The articles dedicated to Hana reflect not only the breadth of her research interests, but also the wide circle of art historians and friends that Hana has established as a mentor and colleague during her long career. The impressive list of her publications between 1954 and 2020 – which she continued to add to for many years after her retirement from the National Gallery – testifies to an outstanding personality in the world of art history and an inexhaustible source of knowledge.

The Bulletin is available in the museum’s online shop for 8 euros.
