Toma Vishanov is an artist known for his contributions to Bulgarian art during the National Revival period. He was a significant figure in the early period of Bulgarian Renaissance, introducing innovative artistic ideas that were initially rejected by his contemporaries. Vishanov's works showcase a new manner influenced by European 18th-century art, characterized by realistic, vivid, and expressive figures.

In 1790, Toma Vishanov returned to Bulgaria and created the icon "Holy Mother of God with Child, Angels and Saints," which exhibits baroque elements typical of Serbian painters of that era. The icon depicts the Virgin standing on clouds with two angels by her side, one holding a crown and a scepter on velvet.
