Photographer's Note

Marcinkowice is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Tuczno, within Walcz County, West Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-western Poland.

Church of St. Catherine. - Erected in years 1627-1628 founded by Andrzej Tuczynski from Tuczno. This is a one-nave building, raised in a gothic style, with a presbytery closed from many sides, with a large, massive tower from the west. A sacristy and a small transformed from a former porch cling to it from the north.
Following the Gothic projection there are not plastered walls of brick, slopes and ogival window openings of the elevation. Only the arrangement and the size of bricks, and also the vault which covers the interior, show the epoch operating different from Gothic range of forms and architectural resources.
In the main altar remained a valuable picture in wooden Renaissance framing presenting Madonna surrounded by angels. The number of painter's details allows to suppose that the picture in characteristic for the church painting of XVI and XVII centuries,
and it is a work of outstanding painter from Gdansk Herman Han ( 1574- 1628) whose most important works remained in the Cistercian abbey in Pelplin.
