Zograf Dorotej (painter Dorotej) is a Serbian icon painter who worked in the period of the end of the Hilandar workshop. He was a 17th century iguman at Hilandar Monastery in Mount Athos, Greece.[1]

Probably in consequence of Zograf Danilo, that is Pop Danilo the painter's role at Hilandar, several icons and frescoes that differ greatly from the painting concepts in Serbian lands appeared there in the last quarter of the 17th century. A striking example of this is the small icon of St. Demetrius and St. Nestor, donated by the monk Stefan, signed by the Serbian painter Dorotej. Austere in material, with short and baldly drawn figures, it simply repeats the pattern of the so-called Greek icon painting style.[2]
