The painting of Our Lady of the Snows in the church in Korzkiew was created at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries and placed in a side altar from the second quarter of the 17th century, richly decorated in an auricular style. Iconographically, it is modelled on the popular image of Our Lady of the Snows, called "Salus Populi Romani" from the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. This painting is strongly associated with the rosary service, in the territory of the Polish Commonwealth it was represented by numerous copies. Some of the paintings were brought directly from Rome. Unfortunately, the origin and attribution of this work are unknown.
