reading options in Mary Magdalene imagery in northern paintings 1430 to 1550, Penny Jolly explores how the saint’s frequent acceptance drew upon her skill to embrace oppositions and include more than a few paradoxical roles: sinner-prostitute and saint, erotic seductress and holy prophet. examining work by way of Rogier van der Weyden, Quentin Massys, and others, Jolly investigates artists’ and audiences’ responses to expanding non secular tensions, increasing artwork markets, and altering roles for ladies. utilizing cultural principles about the gendered and pregnant physique, Jolly finds how costume confirms the Magdalene’s multivalent nature. In a few work, her gown’s establishing laces betray her wantonness but concurrently mark her as Christ’s spiritually pregnant Bride; in different places ’undress’ reconfirms her erotic nature whereas satirically marking her penitence; in nonetheless different works, unique finery expresses her sanctity whereas celebrating Antwerp’s cloth undefined. New photograph varieties come up, as whilst the saint appears to be like as a lovesick musician enjoying a lute or as a melancholic contemplative, eager for Christ. a few depictions emphasize her intercessory position via leading edge pictorial options that invite performative viewing or relate her to the mythological Pandora and Italian Renaissance Neoplatonism. all through, the Magdalene’s ambiguities destabilize readings of her imagery whereas enticing audiences throughout a huge social and non secular spectrum.
