Abstract

The painting of Madonna and the Child was probably created in the 17th century. Originally, it was much smaller in size (later a large part of the canvas was added and painted). In the 18th century, it was placed into the altar, and after 1964 it was set back to an ornamental frame. Perhaps it was funded by Jan Klemens Branicki (died in 1673). Madonna and the Child is depicted as the Queen of Heaven, as evidenced by attributes such as the crown on her head and the sceptre in her hand or the orb held by the Child.
