    "Painting of Mary Magdalene" by Jan van Scorel via DailyArt app, your daily dose of art

  • rijksmuseum

    The woman is Mary Magdalen. A jar of ointment is her usual attribute, with which she is said to have tended Jesus’s feet. Van Scorel portrayed her as a seductive, lavishly dressed courtesan, a reference to her apparent origins as a prostitute. Her costume shows the influence of Italian painting on Van Scorel, which he absorbed when he travelled to Rome. Jan van Scorel, 1530.

Elisabeth of Valois (detail), Juan Pantoja de la Cruz, 1605

Interesting 16th c transitional style. I can't tell if the sleeves are paned or slashed. Estimated time period 1530s-1550, by the looks of the sleeves.

I have plans to make this!!

Another interesting contemporary costume study, this time by Hans Holbein the Younger.  It’s very unusual to see women’s shoes in Medieval and Renaissance artwork, making information about them scarce.

Ghirlandaio - Interested in making on of these connected sleeve dress like the blue and darker navy in the back. Don't see those as often. Earlier period?

St. George and the Dragon, detail of the Princess, c.1445-50 (oil on panel) by Jost Haller (c.1410-c.1485)

Albrecht Duerer, Lady on Horseback and Landsknecht. c. 1497. Check out the shoe detail on him; VERY interesting and different style than the average cow mouth shoe.

Likely Italian, late 1500s. the upper sleeve is much longer than I've ever seen, interesting to know if each is a separate section or long panes with 3 parts couched down with buttons. I have a feeling this is caused by the painter's less than expert use of perspective.

Dressing the Italian way Interesting notes: the hem line is bound with a bias tape. This is one of the few views of the back of a doublet. The underskirt has train. The sleeves on the golden gown has several rows of slash and pulled fabric.-- Darc
