Summary/Abstract: During the nineteenth century many churches were constructed and renovated within what is now the Eparchy of Vranje, which necessitated to commission many icon-painters for their decoration. These were mostly from what is now Macedonia and Bulgaria, led by masters from workshops based in such major art centres as Debar and Samokov. The painters were mainly commissioned to make iconostases though some of them worked also on murals. Among the former was Emmanuel Isakov, followed by the painters from Debar Veno Iliev and Zafir Vasiljković, as well as Evstatij Pop Dimitrov. Dimitrije Andonov Papradiški, born in the vicinities of Veles, also painted several churches, alone or with Peter Nikolov. Teofan Isailović Bužarovski from Galičnik and Krsta Avramov Dičić from Tresonče used to work in the region at the turn of the twentieth century, while in the inter- war period, such painters as Teodosije Nikolić from Lazaropolje and painters, who had arrived from the Bulgarian lands, such as Georgi Pop Alexov from the region of Pernik and Vasil Pop Radoikov from Samokov have received commissions to paint murals.
