High altar

Catalogue note author
Maria Działo


High altar was built in the second half of the 19th century or in the early 20th century in the eclectic style that combines the elements of Neo-Baroque and Neo-Renaissance. The neo-renaissance elements include structure imitating a triumphal arch with fully flat entablature above side pivots, as well as a shape of altar finial imitating a renaissance tondo located in a niche, the arch of which is decorated with suspended rosettes. The altar might have been made in the workshop of a Tyrolean artist.
