Judith needs identification

16 Aug

Days like this make me want to me want to rip off someone’s head.

This painting looks like the style of Tintoretto, but it is not listed with his works.

One reputable website says it is in the Prado Museum.  Another reputable website repeated that citation.   But the Prado’s website does not acknowledge it.   And internet research gets really scary when a search turns up your own blog.

So who painted this and where is it?

Tintoretto “The Death of Holofernes,” oil on canvas, 198 x 325 cm, Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain

And while I am in this position: this was also attributed to Tintoretto by a less reputable website.  A Mannerist for sure, but I am not certain this was even executed by Tintoretto.  Maybe in Kindergarten.

Tintoretto? “The Death of Holofernes,” oil on canvas,??

Does it really have to be this difficult?

Finally i have confirmation on the first painting from Museo Del Prado Encyclopedia: Tintoretto.   Never found the actual image in their gallery but did confirm from a listing by the dimensions of the artwork.   (wiping sweaty brow)  i ought to be paid for this.
