Description of the picture :
Maria Magdalina. Part of the “Brack Family Tripty” is Rogir van der Weiden. Wood, butter. 41 x 34
Flemish artist Rogir van der Weiden wrote The Triptych of the Marriage family after a trip to Italy.
On the right side, Maria Magdalene is depicted as a completely earthly young woman in beautiful robes and elegant hats, her appearance corresponds to the northern type of beauty. The landscape, which has little in common with the landscapes of Palestine, against the background of which it is presented, is perfectly written. Beautifully written mountains that are overgrown with forest. Hiking and horse travelers wander through the fields and forests under the blue sky. The image is fascinated by its fabulous beauty.
Triptych, who got its name by the first owners, changed its location several times. He entered the Louvre in 1913.
