This Judith is from the 1870s and by the French painter Jean Joseph Benjamin Constant (1845-1902), who was specialized in historical and oriental subjects.

Constant shows Judith in all her luxury clothes as a strong, powerful, decisive, resolute women. It’s not that girlish type which some artist chose. The well arranged banners behind her recall the wings of an angel. So Judith appears as an revenging archangel.
