Sebastiano Ricci painted a series of seven paintings of New Testament subjects for Joseph Smith, three of which are on display in the gallery outside this cabinet room. This is a study for the largest of the paintings (more than 6 m wide), now hanging at Hampton Palace, showing Mary Magdalene washing and anointing Christ’s feet in the house of Simon the Pharisee.
