    Title: Mary Magdalene in Ecstasy



    Medium: Oil on Canvas

    Traditional depictions would show angels carrying Mary into the clouds. Caravaggio chose to show the event as an intense inner experience, almost erotic. Several copies of this painting exist. This one is in a private collection in Rome. In 2014 an Italian art historian claimed she had found the original painting, also owned by a private collector.
