Reclining Mary Magdalene Reading in the Wilderness Painte Porcelain in Ornate Oval Frame After Batoni Circa 1870's 

After Pompeo Batoni (Italian, 1708-1787) a German Painted Porcelain Plaque of "The Reclining Mary Magdalene Reading in the Wilderness" 
Painted on porcelain, and most likely on a KPM Porcelain plate, these late 19th century, circa 1870's painting are done with precision and execution. These small studios would have renowned and highly skilled artist working, painting on porcelain for the decorative market. Most were used for export and sold to America and other countries in the world trade of the 19th century. 
Pompeo Batoni was an Italian 1708-1787, his allegorical and mythological pictures are works of beauty, fine almost realistic detail, and typical of his style and period working. His work and style is at the very beginning of the Neoclassical movement. You can see his use of the classical Italian color scheme of the royal blues. 

The theme of Mary Magdalene reading the holy scriptures in the woods with a skull at the base of the book has done by many people and was a growing movement of depicting Mary as a woman seeking knowledge and spirituality. The book is the Bible, as she reads in the wilds of the woods and the skull at the base of the book is the representation of the death. Many consider Batoni's painting of Mary to be a high mark of this new growing movement of Mary. The combination of the subject and the details and craftsmanship of Batoni made his art a very sought after and studied. 

The painted porcelain is mounted in a very fine deep shadow oval frame with glass. You can see the depth of the frame in the some of the images. The porcelain is mounted and sealed and lined with a fine dark decorative trim. The frame is wood and Gesso and guilt and is period to the piece.
