Penitent Mary Magdalene by 17th Century Italian Painter Francesco Gessi

About

This oil painting by Bolognese, Italy painter Francesco Gessi is remarkable for its tenderly depicted subject and dramatic usage of chiaroscuro. The painter attains an almost etheral simplification of the human figure, shaping the folds of Mary's cloth into quasi-geometrical arrangements and limiting his palette to translucent, liquid color, beautifully complimenting the delicately nuanced backdrop. Gessi's extremely refined treatment of subject and material is visible in the grace and elegance with which he portrays his subject: her long, flaxen hair is an intriguing match to the red drapery behind her.
