Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene is another Wikimedia category that features artworks based on the most enigmatic of all Christian female saints.  Some believed that she was a sinner, a prostitute or even the wife of Jesus Christ.  With all that mystery surrounding her, she has been a favorite subject for artists throughout history.  Here a few of my favorite images from the set:

Francesco Hayez (1825)

Anthony Frederick Augustus Sandys (1860)

Lucas Cranach (1525)

Maestro della Maddalena di Capodimonte (17th Century)

Unknown Portrait of Mrs Marie-Elisabeth de Ludres,
chanoiness of Poussay, mistress of Louis XIV as Mary Magdalene
