Today, the icons’ collection of the Art Gallery of B&H contains about eighty works that were made in the timeframe between the end of the 15th and the beginning of the 19th century. The collection includes the works of local, Italo-Greek and Russian authors. Amongst represneted local authors it is worth noting Dimitrijević – Rafajilović family, as well as individual authors such as Stanko Daskalo, Simeon Lazarević to name a few; as well as foreign authors who belonged to the Corfu, Moscow and other schools. Although small in size, this collection contains all the basic styles of icons made in this part of the world so that we can distinguish – within this collection – the main features of each of these styles. Thus, combined with the collection of the old Orthodox Church in Sarajevo, the collection of the Art Gallery of B&H is a home to one of the richest and the best known icon collections in the country.
