The Penitent Magdalene - Sold

after Ambrosius Benson (c.1495–1550) - Sold

The Penitent Magdalene - Sold

A very fine early copy derived from a composition which Benson repeated on numerous occasions, the prototype of which seems to be the picture in the Royal Collection, Hampton Court (inv. no. 417). Friedländer suggests that this original, known to have been part of Henry's VIII's collection, was painted circa 1530, when the theme was particularly popular (see M.J. Friedländer, Early Netherlandish Painting, Leiden 1974, vol. XI, p. 60 & plate 174).
