Schr. 1603c. The ecstasy of St Mary Magdalen. The saint, portrayed with a halo and her body covered with hair, is raised up by four angels. Single-lined frame. Unique copy. Plausibly described by Nicholson as Swabian, but his suggestion for dating (‘c.1450?’), later changed by an annotator of his catalogue to ‘1470–80’, is too early; Schreiber proposes c.1470.
