The Church of St Anne at Lubartów was founded by Pawel Karol Sanguszko and built by Pawel Antoni Fontana between 1733 and 1738. In the years 1737-1738 it was provided with seven altars, a pulpit, and a baptismal font, as well as furniture for the chancel and vestry, none of these objects having until now been studied by art historians. On the basis of analysis of their forms and origins it may be supposed that Pawel Fontana designed only four altars (of St John Nepomuk, of St Anthony, of St Barbara and of St Joseph), along with the furniture for the chancel and vestry. For the altars Fontana used his characteristic set of formal motifs of Italian origin. The remaining altars - the high altar and two side ones of Our Lady of the Rosary and of the Crucifixion - and the pulpit refer to the Austrian sculpture of the end of the 17th and first quarter of the 18th centuries. The high altar reveals affinities to works by Matthias Steinl (Lambach, Lubiaz), whereas there exists no particular prototype for the side altars. although in their crowning parts they resemble Andrea Pozzo's altars and almost contemporary side altars in Bratislava Cathedral (Georg Rafael Donner). Archival material permitted the establishment that the sculptured furnishings had been executed in the court sculptor's workshop which employed several, mostly anonymous, woodcarvers, perhaps trained in the vigorous sculptural centre at Pulawy. The most important role may have been played here by Johann Lucius, a woodcarver of Viennese descent, recorded at Lubartów from 1733 to 1738, and Henryk Hoffmann, perhaps responsible for the classicizing sculptures in the high altar. The furniture was made locally and at Kolbuszowa, a cabinet-making centre of countrywide renown (the cabinet-maker Józef executed the confessionals, also Michal Kolisz, Stanislaw Stelmach, Szulz, and Golynski being recorded).
