Pamiatke Evy Šefčákovej
[In Memory of Eva Šefčáková]


Dr. Eva Šefčáková (June 4th, 1935 – September 26th, 2011), one of the most significant Slovak experts in the history of drawing, graphic art and illustration, graduated in art history from the Philosophical Faculty of the Comenius University in Bratislava in 1958. She published a number of papers in scientific journals as well as books. Her research was based predominantly on the collections of the Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava (SNG), where she supervised the Drawings and Graphic Art Collection for more than a decade and a half. In the SNG, she individually organized up to fifty exhibitions and helped to organize lots of collectively conceived projects. She wrote introductions and articles in the majority of related catalogues. Slovak art historiography lost with late Dr. Šefčáková an exceptionally hard-working scholar, whose work serves as a solid basis for those who continue her research.
