  • Abstract: Analysing two venerated icons from Hvar on the homonime Adriatic island, the autor describes relations beetween traditional icon painting with stylistic and iconografic innovations in Late middle ages. The Virgin Hodigitria from the Hvar Cathedral is described within the context of the benedictine Adriatic workshops at the end of the 13th century. The Virgin Glykofilousa from the church of Virgin Kruvenica near Hvar belongs to the group of Carmelitan icons from the first half of the 14th century.
