Jov Vasilijević or Jov Vasiljevich[1]was a Baroque painter who came from Kievan Rus' and opened a workshop for painters in Sremski Karlovci in 1743[2][3]He was the official court painter of Patriarch Arsenije IV Jovanović Šakabenta.[1]In the narthex, the old fresco painting of Krušedol was replaced by a new one in 1750, and in 1751 the painting of the altar area (chancel) was completed five years later.[4]The new art style is present in the choice of themes as well as in the manner of execution of the work.[2]

As an example, the illustration of the Nine Blisses, according to the Gospel of St. Matthew, unknown in Serbian icon painting until then, was depicted in a way "typical for the eastern baroque art." On several scenes special attention was given to the landscape and there are elements of Renaissance and Baroque architecture. According to art historian Dejan Medaković, Krušedol painting testifies "to the western orientation accepted through the distinctive Kievan' Rus manner which stylistically defined the Serbian painting between 1750 and 1770. Serbian painters easily accepted all artistic novelties that caused the final abandonment of Byzantine art canons."
