Herewith, five images for FAF of LaMa's patroness:
I especially like this image of the Magdalene, before conversion. Don't her eyes look tired?
I had never seen this image before, but I love it. Love the angle the artist used. Love the light. Love the skull.
This was the image I was most struck by this week when I was researching what to put up here for FAF. It is very different, and I love the fabric.
OK, you didn't think I could do a series of religiously themed paintings without my beloved Caravaggio, now did you? Seriously?
And finally, one of those paintings I love because it shows us that the Magdalene speaks to all times and places. A Magdalene with blond hair? Oh, yes. Because there are those of us who were Magdalenes, even though we were fair instead of dark.
Happy Friday, ya'll!
