(b. ca. 1484, Pordenone, d. 1539, Ferrara)

Christ and Mary Magdalen

Detached fresco
Galleria Franchetti, Ca' d'Oro, Venice

Venice's climate and environment were unfavourable to fresco paintings, which were easily damaged by damp. This powerful fresco, painted originally for the cloister of the church Santo Stefano, has faded badly.
