The painting of St. Kinga of Poland was made in the third quarter of the 18th century by Piotr Kornecki with the intention of crowning the altar. Saint Kinga of Poland was the daughter of the Hungarian king Béla IV, the wife of Bolesław the Chaste and the duchess of Cracow and Sandomierz. The painting depicts the woman saint in a habit of the Order of Poor Clares, while the crown and sceptre lying before her testify to her princely dignity.
