St. Hyacinth
Among the works of Baroque painting, paintings in elaborately carved frames are valuable examples. They deal with various themes, at least two of which are particularly important in the context of the history of the Dominicans. The first one dated to the first half of the 18th century depicts the founder of the Gdańsk monastery, St. Hyacinth, dressed in a Dominican habit and carrying in his hands attributes such as the Monstrance with the Blessed Sacrament and the figure of the Madonna and Child. The second painting, dating from 1758, shows a scene of handing the founding act to the Dominicans by the Pomeranian Duke Świętopełek.
