- Date of creation
- Material and technique
- Oil painting on canvas
- Poaugustinian monastery complex in Żagań, Poland
- The portrait was originally accompanied by the inscription: 'Morbilli puero clauserunt lumina, Diva / Warthensis post hoc sana reclusit ei. / Providus hic Abbas rem lapsam restituisset, / Ast in perniciem convolat ignis aqua".
As a boy he was blind. However, the merciful, gracious Our Lady of Bardz opened his eyes again. He cared for the dilapidated monastery, although fire (fire of 1688) and water added to the misery.
