This is the companion of the Magdalen, and its equal in finish. Every part is treated with the greatest delicacy, and the subject admirably expressed. The head of St. John is beautifully treated. It is the calm head of a saint, to whom death was nought; and the feeling of the female is natural and expressive. She fulfils, with reluctance and disgust, the cruel commands of her mother. Even the secondary parts, the dress, pearls, and accessories must not be lost sight of. [P. 11; see entry 04300006 for companion piece.]
