Abstract

The painting with the representation of Saint Florian on the background of the burning building was painted around 1852, and it was mentioned in the altar where it is located from 1866. As the patron of the fire service, the saint, together with St. Kinga (Cunegunda) of Poland, he was supposed to watch over the safety of salt miners. The painting is a good example of 19th-century religious painting.
