    Yes, but the table and chairs and dinner jackets just don’t have the same effect.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen any other religious paintings that take place at a modern formal dinner like this!

    Repeat.

    Enlarged image can be found here, or here, or at the only work, by this artist, so far, to appear in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    Mary Magdalene in the house of Simon the Pharisee (links show Wikipedia pages — her Catholic Encyclopedia bio, and Wikipedia page about the depicted event) is shown, with a different coloration framed image, by its Google translated current-location page.

    @lisapaloma13 provided another title above — thanks! A different coloration, click-to-enlarge, framed image, along with a description, can be found here.

    Wikipedia pages (sometimes Google translated) for the painting’s identified figures: Antoine Duc-Quercy as Christ, Liane de Pougy as Mary Magdelene, Ernest Renan as Simon the Pharisee, Hippolyte Taine, Jean-Jacques Weiss, John Lemoinne, Edmond Taigny, (Michel) Eugène Chevreul, Alexandre Dumas, fils, Dr. Adrien Proust, and the artist; his collection (more under Subcategories).

    One reason I love this strip is the way I periodically have to go investigating an artist or just a painting – I love learning new stuff ;-)
