    "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.

The upper sleeves interest me. Actually the whole dress does. Fabric, edging, and all.

This hair would be easy to fake on someone with short hair. Baroque-the tapered, slashed sleves

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.

Necklace might be coral and gold beads, pendant likely gold with three pearls draped. Bracelet is pearl and coral. Girdle is coral and possibly pearls? They seem rather large and oddly transparent. 1560s Giovanni Antonio Fasolo, Paola Gualdo and Daughters Detail. This dress is worn by a teenager

I have plans to make this!!

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?

The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned roughly the 14th through the 17th century, beginning in Italy in the late Middle Ages and later spreading to the rest of Europe. It encompassed the revival of learning based on classical sources, the rise of courtly and papal patronage, the development of perspective in painting, and advancements in science. The Renaissance had wide-ranging consequences in all intellectual pursuits, but is perhaps best known for its artistic aspect and the contributions of such polymaths as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, who have inspired the term "Renaissance men".

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.
