pendant

a not always combined but intended pendant according to Eikemeier, due to the similar composition and size and the fact that both paintings were in the Düsseldorf gallery; a pendant is unlikely according to Gaehtgens since the painting is mirrored by a painting of Mary Magdalene by Guido Cagnacci in the collection catalogue of Pigage from 1778
