Description This carved wooden statue came from a church interior. Most statues of this type were originally covered by gesso (a mixture of glue and plaster of Paris) and then painted in vibrant colors, with some details gilded; only traces of these decorations still remain. This is possibly Mary Magdalene from a group of the Three Marys at the Tomb.
Provenance William T. / Henry Walters Collection, Baltimore; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by William T. or Henry Walters
