The Mary Magdalene is a painting by Pietro Perugino dated to around 1500 and preserved in the Palatine Gallery in Florence.
Mary Magdalene is portrayed by three-quarters, turned to the left with a dreamy look in silent contemplation, looking down to the right.
The figure emerges from a dark background with soft tones and modulated debtors of Leonardo's sfumato, while the pose, with his hands resting on an imaginary parapet, takes the example of the Flemish school. The style of the painting is fresh and appealing, paradigmatic of those characteristics that determined the success of the artist and that made me fall in love with this masterpiece.
