Judith celebrates Independence

04 Jul

For the celebration of Independence Day for the United States of America, a revisit to Patriotic Judith is due.

Alessandro Varotari, “Judith with the head of Holofernes,” c.1614-25, oil on canvas, 112 x 85 cm, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, Austria

Even if there was no Independence Day for the USA or Old Glory when this portrait was painted.
