In Poland, a set of icon frescoes have been found to date to the 15th Century. A restoration program is planned.

From the article:
Quote
Art historian Jaroslaw Giemza said Tuesday that recent research on the frescoes at the ancient church in the eastern village of Posada Rybotycka have dated them to that late Middle Age period.
