Jakub Walerian Tumanowicz (1714–1798) was a Catholic priest, a talented preacher, and a bishop of the Armenian Catholic Church in Lviv. He was of Armenian descent. Jakub Walerian Tumanowicz studied at the Pontifical College of Theatine Fathers in Lviv. He was also engaged in the construction of new churches. In the late 1790s and up to the early 1800s, Ostap Biliavskyi created a gallery of portraits of Armenian Latin bishops, including the portrait of Jakub Walerian Tumanowicz. The male waist-length image is depicted against the dark background. The painting is characterized by the balance of the composition, the smooth contours, and clearly drawn volumes. The artist mainly focused on the inner world of the portrayed man.
