The Franciscan Church High Altar in Poznan (c1690). There are two paintings in the St. Anthony of Padua Church on Castle Hill: Vision of St. Anthony and the Blessed Virgin Mary Immaculately Conceived (1877) at the top of the altarpiece. In the presbytery and the nave (barrel vault with lunettes), the basilica has the Franciscan monk Adam Swach work completed in around 1702: polychrome painting depicting scenes from the St. Anthony life.
