The Tate Modern, a museum of modern and contemporary art in London, is one of the most frequently visited art galleries in the world. And it is the London-based museum that is now working on an exhibition of Slovak artist Mária Bartuszová, which is to open next year.

The British art gallery has exhibited works of several Slovak artists in the past, and even possesses some of the works. But next year's exhibition will be unique as it is a huge individual retrospective public display of Bartuszová's artworks.

The sculptor is an example of an artist who was recognised only after her death, and that mostly abroad as her work continues to be forgotten in her home country.

“We cannot answer well enough why her artwork still remains somewhat undiscovered in Slovakia,” said Anna Bartuszová, the sculptor's daughter.
