In this pleasant painting we see portrayed Mary Magdalene in meditation: the gaze is turned towards the sky and is depicted together with her classic iconographic attributes: the crucifix, the book and the ointment vial, with which, according to the evangelical tradition, would wash Jesus.

Her graceful face, which however allows her devoted attitude to shine through, gives the painting a more intimate and delicate religiosity, not excessive, a typical characteristic for works intended for domestic devotion, as in the case of this Saint Magdalene. .

The freshness of her features immediately stands out from the representation of the Saint, she is in fact portrayed as young and good-looking: it is precisely this iconographic peculiarity that makes the work fascinating and very pleasant, probably commissioned for a private room.

The painting presents the peculiarities of eighteenth-century French portraiture, characterized by a soft drawing and a wise use of light. The rather marked chiaroscuro and the well-calibrated shades produce an excellent result thanks to the play of light on the face highlighted by the dark background of the scene.

The painting has been relined and is in an excellent state of conservation with the colors still bright.

The painting is sold together with a nice golden frame.


The work is sold with a certificate of authenticity and a descriptive iconographic card.
