Penitent Magdalene by Titian

Milan's Ambrosiana Library reports that a painting of Mary Magdalene has revealed the signature of Italian master Titian after a film of dirt was peeled away. 'This is a very important discovery,' said Msgr Franco Buzzi, head of Milan's Ambrosiana Library where the picture has been kept since the institution was founded in the early 17th century by Cardinal Federico Borromeo, the Milan archbishop immortalised in Manzoni's Promessi Sposi. Up till now the painting of Mary Magdalene was believed to have been painted by one of Titian's apprentices.
