The article is devoted to one of the fresco ensembles in the church of Our Saviour of St. Euphrosyne’s convent in Polotsk. These murals rarely were brought to researchers’ notice. Art historians date the south chapel frescoes from the mid-12th to mid-13th c. However, their program of decoration is of a memorial and funeral character. This fact along with technological and stylistic features of the frescoes lets us conclude, that they were created later than the main ensemble of Our Saviour church (ca. 1161). Artistic system of the chapel murals is closely related to the painting of the beginning of the 13th c. For instance, it has parallels with Athos miniatures of that period.
