Abstract

The painting of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus in the church in Krzywaczka was created in 1886 by Antoni Stopa (1849-1922), a painter from Ostrysz (near Maków Podhalański). The piece is an example of Stopa's early works, which were heavily influenced by his teacher from the School of Fine Arts in Cracow – Jan Matejko. The church in Krzywaczka boasts two other pieces created by the same painter: "Madonna and the Child" and "Christ Crucified". All three paintings were created in 1886 and feature the same shape of a standing, semi-circularly finished rectangle sized to match the niches in the side altars.
