1. The Magdalen (c. 1530). Attr. to The Master of the Legend of the Magdalen (German, active from about 1483 to around 1527). Oil on canvas. National Gallery, London. Presented to the National Gallery by Queen Victoria at the Prince Consort’s wish, 1863.

    The figures on the jar the Magdalen holds may be Cain and Abel. The rocks in the background represent La Sainte-Baume in Provence, where she is said to have spent many years in penitence.
