Additional description from The Metropolitan Museum of Art (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - www.metmuseum.org)

According to the Golden Legend, Mary Magdalen spent the end of her life in a cave near Marseilles where she was visited daily by angels, their songs her only nourishment. Giaquinto shows her dressed as a penitent (around her chest she wears a cilice, a metal belt with spurs), her gaze focused on the gesturing angel and the crown of thorns displayed by a cherub. The picture was painted for Cardinal Mario Bolognetti (1690–1756) in Rome. Giaquinto was the foremost decorative fresco painter in Italy after Tiepolo, but this moving work shows him no less a master of religious painting.
