Workshop of the Master of the Magdalen Legend: 'The Magdalen'

Explore the paintings

The Magdalen holds a jar of the balm with which she anointed Christ's body. The saint was once held to be the portrait of a lady, but this is unlikely. Several versions of this composition exist; in some the figure has a halo. This picture was probably painted in about 1520.
