Cagnacci's Repentant Magdalene: Curator's introduction

Date and time

Monday 20 February, 1–1.30pm

Room 1

Admission free

Guido Cagnacci's Repentant Magdalene is a major loan from the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California.

Cagnacci was extraordinarily talented and one of the most accomplished Italian painters of the Baroque period, yet he is not represented in any UK public collection.

Join Francesca Whitlum-Cooper, Myojin-Nadar Curatorial Assistant, to examine this astonishing painting.
