I am going on a tour of Mary Magdalene, from Berlin to Paris and Munich, to visit and knead the different versions of her. The figure in the Louvre comes from the Hermann Göring art collection and was given to France as restitution.

DHM, BADV and Federal Archives make Hermann Göring’s art collection available as data and image banks for provenance research and interested research institutions.

former owner: unknown
Consignment: Louvre / Paris, acquired through exchange (Museum France)
Remaining after 1945: Restitution France
