Sacral art of the Roman Catholic Churtch 15th - 19th c.

The exhibition consists of exhibits coming from the old churches and chapels of the Przemyśl diocese. These are mainly works of anonymous authors presenting various level of skills. The baptismal font from the non-existent gothic church of St Michael the Archangel in Sanok is the oldest relic in this collection.
The late gothic is represented also by an expressive crucifix from the parish church in Mrzygłód, made with great precision, small, polychromed sculpture of St Elisabeth, the Virgin and Christ and panel from the triptych presenting Christ falling under the cross. The exhibition is complemented with large-sized baroque paintings with dynamic, frequently diagonal compositions and polychromed sculptures of saints, which had comprised original equipment of the churches. Special artistic value have unusually expressive rococo sculptures – outstanding work of the Lvov school dating from 2 half of the 18-th century. That group is represented by the sculptures of St Nepomucene and unknown saint. Small-sized, carved crucifixes, figures of angels and sculptures of the Pensive Christ being a product of folk, local authors are represented in large number.
