It’s been just a few days since a new painting
has been exposed in one of the rooms of the Doges’ Palace in Venice
, and precisely in the Hall once occupied by the Old Civil Court of the Venetian Republic. We are talking about “The Ecstasy of Mary Magdalene
” by the Roman artist of the 1600’s Artemisia Gentileschi.
This works of art comes from a private collection and it has been given on a long-term loan
to the Doges’ Palace.
We have now the possibility to admire the powerful style
of this exceptional artist, as well as the sensuality of the Saint
, represented in a fairly unusual way, in ecstasy, instead of in penitence. We can perceive then the voluptuous and totally human beauty of Mary Magdalene
, as well as the originality and the sensibility of this paintress who was neglected for too long.
We will be waiting for you, to take you on a guided tour of the Doges’ Palace
, which has become even more precious thanks to the presence of this unique work of art.
