In the foreground, Christ stands facing Mary Magdalene, his hands raised as he forbids her to touch him. In the rock behind her is the empty tomb guarded by two angels. Between them Saints Peter and John return to Jerusalem in the distance, having seen the empty tomb. On the left many crosses are silhouetted against the dawn sky.
ProvenancePossibly the 'Noli me Tangere' recorded in the inventory of Henrietta Maria's possessions at the chateau of Colombes near Paris, 1669; first certainly recorded in the collection of Charles II in 1680
