Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with a miscellany in handwriting (SS Cyril and Methodius National Library 1088), compiled in 1840 by Yanachko Stanimirov from the village of Breze and the local priest. The autographs of the icon-painter are used to identify his paintings. His unknown mural ensemble in the Serbian Yillage of Dojkinci is presented in brief. It is assumed that Yanachko Stanimirov has been strongly influenced by icon-painter Kosta Valiov from Samokov, whose journeyman he supposedly has been. Influences of some icons by icon-painter Priest Rade are discernible. Yanachko Stanimirov has used as a model prints contained in the Euchologion, published in Venice in 1761.
