Christ in the Home of Martha and Mary

18th century
Fresco
Church of La Maddalena, Rome

The fresco is in the vault at the entrance of the nave. The style is reminiscent of porcelain works of the period. The Magdalene's golden hair, which flowed madly even in medieval images, has been tidied up and beribboned. She is no longer voluptuous but perky.
