Abstract

The portrait of Zofia Kochańska is an example a unique branch of the arts. It is a coffin portrait presenting a realistic image of the deceased, yet displayed as if alive. The piece was created in the third quarter of the 17th century. It is a part of a seven-piece set of epitaph plaques commemorating the funders of the church from the Świerczowscy and Kochańscy families, buried under the church floor.
