’Jesus and Mary Magdalene.’
The last of twenty panels depicting the Passion of Christ in the Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs at La Tour shows Mary Magdalene recognizing Jesus after his resurrection.
The fresco was executed in 1492 on the chapel's right wall by Currand Bravesi and Guirard Nadal, two of the so-called 'peintres primitifs niçois' (primitive painters of Nice).
