Neapolitan School, 18th Century
THE PENITENT MAGDALEN
oil on canvas, unframed


This 'Magdalen', likely a later copy after an as yet unidentified 17th century prototype, bears the hallmarks of Neapolitan painting during that period. The dramatic expression, emphatic naturalism, and intense chiaroscuro derive from the profound influence of Caravaggio (1571–1610), who spent a number of his later years in the port city.
Unframed: 78.5 x 68.2 cm.; 30 7/8 x 26 3/4 in.
