Mary Magdalene. Part of the Triptych of the Marriage Family   Rogier van der Weyden

Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden wrote “Triptych of the Family of Marriage” after a trip to Italy.

On the right wing, Mary Magdalene is depicted as a completely earthly young woman in a beautiful garment and elegant headdress, her appearance corresponds to the northern type of beauty. It is beautifully written having little in common with the landscapes of Palestine landscape, against which it is represented.

Beautifully written mountains that are overgrown with forest. Foot and horse travelers travel through the fields and forests under the blue sky. The image fascinates with its fairy-tale beauty. The triptych, which got its name from the first owners, several times changed its location. He entered the Louvre in 1913.
