Art historian Jiří Fajt is to be appointed head of the National Gallery in Prague on Tuesday. The prestigious art institution has been under provisional management for over a year following the sacking of its former director Vladimir Rosel. Jiří Fajtl was handpicked for the post by then culture minister Alena Hanáková who was criticized for not holding an open competition for the position. His appointment was put off several times.
