Young Judith

Judith and the Head of Holofernes (1608) by the Italian Renaissance painter Giovanni Baglione (1571-1643).

It’s a very dramatic scenery. A very young and beautiful Judith with that gigantic severed head of Holofernes. In the back her frightened maid.

  1. Have viewed a few paintings on this subject. All very violent, but art of those days told the story, as do some of the art of today. Thanks for the post.
