Study for a Saint Madeleine - Rubens Workshop

Framed oil on canvas
Dimensions: 75 x 53 cm

We probably have to do a study for a Saint Madeleine whose original is lost to date.
We find this type of female model in several Rubens paintings including the one kept at the Vienna Museum of Art in Austria depicting "The miracles of St. Francis Xavier"; painted between 1617 and 1619.
Madeleine's figure, stylistically close to our painting, stands alongside Christ at the center of this large format.
Particularly clear complexions of pearly white and pink and bluish tones for the shadows are characteristic of this period in the work of Rubens.
The material is generous, fat with the presence of impasto in the blonde hair and some places drapery.
The artist inadvertently left two fingerprints in the purple drape.
Two stamps of wax collection are visible on the 19th century chassis.
