Mary Magdalena c. 17th century Artist Unknown

Mary Magdalena c. 17th century Artist Unknown

Maria Magdalena
In what could be a fragment of a larger painting, this painting depicts a scene which shows Mary Magdalene surrounded by Roman soldiers.  It is unsigned but likely created by a Mexican artist sometime in the 18th century.  While in stable condition the painting’s surface is in need of cleaning and it has some minor paint losses to be repaired. This painting is currently undergoing conservation treatment.
