Untempted by Rome, Florence or Venice, Correggio, working in the North Italian city of Parma, maintained his originality throughout the High Renaissance and became one of the most important influences on seventeenth-century Baroque painting. However, he was receptive to the art particularly of Raphael and Leonardo: his sense of ideal beauty and the structure of his compositions owe much to Raphael, while his handling of textures and light presupposes Leonardo. In this work he uses a pyramidal composition of classic High Renaissance kind and a diagonal movement anticipating the Baroque. The beautiful landscape evokes the light of dawn, the time when Mary Magdalene met Christ by the tomb.
