Cagnacci's Repentant Magdalene

Cagnacci's Repentant Magdalene

 

 

 

 

A dramatic painting that I have always enjoyed in the National Gallery is this one.

 

Filled with Drama.

 

Filled with so many questions.

 

Repentant?

 

What had been done in order to repent?

 

 

Who is this Magdalene?

 

Where is she in the painting?

 

Who are the other actors in this drama?

 

So many questions and so many likely answers as I would sit for hours in front of this canvas that would entertain me as had done so often to so many people ..

 

Enjoy the picture and imagine a scenario for this interesing lively story.
