The Penitent Magdalen Artist: Georges de La Tour (French, Vic-sur-Seille 1593–1653 Lunéville) Date: ca. 1640 Medium: Oil on canvas

“The bathroom mirror has not budged.

The woman who lives there can tell the truth

From the stuff they say,

And looks me in the eye –

Says, “Do you prefer the easy way?

No? Well, OK then – don’t cry.”
