Penitent Magdalene, List of Titian's works

Titian painted a number of penitent Magdalenes. There is a 1533 version[1] at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence and a 1565 version[2] at the Hermitage Museum. Both have a Venus Pudica pose, but the Pitti version has a completely naked torso, despite the cover of the right hand. These two paintings represent the archetypal swooning woman.

Wikipedia also mentions a 1570 oil on wood version in the collection of Luke Brugnara and there is one in the Getty Museum, Los Angeles (Oil on canvas, 106.7 x 93 cm) which is seemingly identical to the one at the Hermitage Museum.
