Gallery of Slovak presidents opens

A NEW presidential tradition has been established with the opening of a gallery displaying portraits of Slovak presidents on April 2.

So far exhibiting only one painting, that of ex-president Michal Kováč (1993-1997), the gallery is expected to feature a portrait of the current president Rudolf Schuster soon.

The painter of the Kováč portrait is Serbian naive artist Sava Stojkov, who is considered to be part of the artistic elite in his country.

A Stojkov painting of Schuster and portraits of the first ladies of former and current presidents are also planned for exhibition.
