Once again, Judith in white. With an interesting neckline. I do wonder what Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum would say.
And yet – there is an emotional tone to this painting that stands in contrast to most others: Judith appears to be sentimental about placing Holofernes’ head in the bag. Rather than dumping it or throwing it into the receptical, she gracefully leans to the right and gently extends her arm toward the bag that is gingerly held by the maid. The sword is held carefully to the other side..
That is not to suggest that she regrets her action. No, rather she seems to be enamoured of the head itself. (shaking my head) There’s no telling about some people.
