Fedusko of Sambir [Федуско із Самбора; Fedusko iz Sambora]. Painter of the 16th century, guild master of the town of Sambir in Galicia. In 1579 he painted an icon of the Annunciation with a background consisting of local architecture and elements of Renaissance ornamentation. The icon was painted in the village of Ivanychi in Volhynia and is preserved in the Kharkiv Art Museum. Some scholars consider Fedusko to be the author of the illuminations to the Peresopnytsia Gospel.
