Penitent Magdelene

Description Provenance Credit
Description Furini was one of the most influential painters in 17th century Florence. This work characteristically reveals an interest in soft, fleshy forms and romantic atmosphere. Following the example of Guido Reni, he often depicted beautiful models in delicate landscapes as in this Penitent Magdelene, which is one of a number of versions by Furini and his workshop that contrast the brightly lit remorseful figure with a darkened landscape. There is a good version of this painting by in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna (inv. no. 213) and another verison was in the art market (Dorotheum, 21 October 2014, lot 271, n158 x 152 cm).
Provenance Acquired by Mr. and Mrs. Egon Kafka, Baltimore; given to Walters Art Museum, 1974.
Credit Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Egon Kafka, 1974
