Description: [...] despite the women at the tomb in the background and the glow of the dawn, the dynamics and uncertainties of narrative are subsumed by an air of serene completion as if the sepia tones wash away all anxieties about the meaning of this meeting. Fra Angelico and Titian, Bronzino and Lavinia Fontana may not have gotten their "Magdalenes" just right, but they all recover some human dignity, pride, and complexity for a woman who, through no fault of her own, lost her importance as a beloved friend of Jesus and her stature as "apostle to the apostles" - not to mention her virtue - in the eyes of many men and women for centuries.
