Judith holds her own

28 Apr

Hans Klett, “Judith with the Head of Holofernes,” 1876, bronze, 15.7 cm, auctioned by Kunstauktionshaus Schloss Ahlden (11/30/2007) Lot 614

I don’t have much to report about this depiction of Judith, except:

  1. This is a bronze nude by Hans Klett.
  2. There is an identical bronze nude of Salome at auction.
  3. There is a similar bronze nude of Bacchantin at auction.
  4. There are two bronze nudes of boys at auction:  Boy with arms raised and Naked Boy.
  5. From which we may deduce Hans Klett excelled in producing bronze nudes.
