Family Discussion

Lot and his Daughters by the Italian Baroque Era painter Guido Reni (1575-1642). Interesting is here that Reni foregoes the normally so effective and popular nudeness and seduction scenery.

Childish Heroine

Judith. A really perfect painting by the Italian Mannerist painter Alessandro di Cristofano di Lorenzo del Bronzino Allori (1535-1607). She is cool and elegant and not at all impressed or frightened.

Astonished Nude

Susanna and the Elders by the Italian Baroque painter Guido Cagnacci (1601-1663). Despite her nakedness Susanna doesn't look scared more surprised what these old guys may want from her.
