"Titian (Tiziano Vecellio, 1497-1576). Cadore (Friuli) Mary Magdalene. 27 x 34. Original (no. 67) in the Pitti Palace Gallery, Florence. Mary Magdalene is here represented with the alabaster box containing the precious ointment, which (according to Matthew XXVI, 7) she poured on Christ's head as he sat at meat. The disciples complaining that it 'might have sold for much, and given to the poor,' Christ said: 'For in that she poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial * * . Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall be also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.'"
