Abstract

The painting of Madonna and the Child was created in the fourth quarter of the 16th century. The work was obscured by a metal robe and crowns added in the 18th century and removed around 2011. The painting is the closest to the images of Virgin Mary in Eleusa type, illustrating the tender love of mother and son. Engraved in mortars and gilded background's decoration was characteristic for panel painting, and its tradition dates back to the Middle Ages.
