Judith slips a nipple – or two

27 Apr

Georg Pencz, “Judith with the Head Holofernes,” 1531, 72 x 86 cm 

Oh those naughty Germans painters.   One minute Pencz is painting a portrait of Martin Luther and the next he is depicting Judith with the Off-the-Shoulder look made popular by Jennifer Beals in Flash Dance (1981).   Yes, she is pure and pensive – and oblivious to her wardrobe malfunction.

Maybe she assumed that since the lecherous Holofernes is dead, she has no more worries.

But then Pencz takes it one step farther … and Judith loses all her clothing.   Similar to depictions by Jan Massys.

Georg Pencz, “Judith with the Head Holofernes,” Oil on panel, 75 x 58 cm, auctioned by Uppsala Auktionskammare 11/30/2010

Just proves the point:   Letting one shoulder slide free is the slippery slope to two boobs in the wind.
