1. The Penitent Magdalene (c.1598). Domenico Tintoretto (Italian, 1560-1635). Capitoline Museum, Rome.

    The Magdalene is generally identified with the penitent harlot described in Luke (7:36 ff) who wept tears and wetted Christ’s feet which she then wiped with her hair, kissed and anointed. One legend describes her as retreating into a grotto at Sainte-Baume in France, clearly visible behind her in the painting.
