Image of Immaculate Mother of God from the village of Czemierniki
In the parish church in Czemierniki, in the main altar, there is a large painting of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception by Antoni Michalak. The initiator of the painting was the then administrator of the parish, Fr. Józef Kuniec, who corresponded with the Artistic Commission at the Bishop’s Curia in Lublin. The commission chose not only the artist-painter, i.e. Antoni Michalak, but also chose the design of the painting which, since 1952, has been decorating the main altar of the temple. The artist was one of the members of the Fraternity of St. Lucas, characterizing by a reference to traditional painting, historical painting and religious themes. For these reasons, it was recommended by the Episcopal Curia to the parish priests of the Lublin diocese and the artist’s works can be found in many museums, churches and private galleries.
