In Rome, Giovanni Baglione, circa 1600, dedicated his works to Christian subjects and carried out commissioned work for various popes. In this piece, he has depicted a musing Maria Magdalena looking at a human skull in semi-darkness.

In Naples, an 18th-century painter conjured up this gallant scene on canvas. The creator of this 18th century Naples scene is Giuseppe Bonito (1707 Castellammare di Stabia - 1789 Naples.) He was a portraitist to the court of Naples. The clothing the subject is wearing suggests the image was created by Bonito in the late 1770s-80s.

Alessandro Longhi was born in Venice in 1733, the son of well-known painter Pietro Longhi. While his father gained notoriety for his wildlife works, Alessandro became a talented painter of the city on water.

Ambrosius Benson was a Lombard painter of the early Renaissance. He spent half of his life in Bruges, where he was a member of the painters' guild. This bust portraits of an unclothed lady most likely was painted shortly after Benson's arrival in Flanders, whereupon oak slats on the back of the canvas would close. It was probably originally a portrait of a Christian-mythological figure like Salomé or Lucretia. However, some anonymous person tried to declare it as Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, as a handwritten note on the back indicates.
