Segna di Bonaventura, Die hl. Maria Magdalena, 1. V. 14. Jh., Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen - Alte Pinakothek München, URL: https://www.sammlung.pinakothek.de/en/artwork/M0xyB85Lpl (Last updated on 30.05.2022)
The artist from Siena, a pupil of Duccio, depicts the saint in a red garment which, together with the ointment jar, identifies her as Mary Magdalene. The strictly planar painting, still very much in keeping with the maniera bizantina, is outstanding thanks to the expressiveness of the face and is enlivened by the ornamental play of lines.
