Judith takes a swing

31 Aug

(From Doublemint Twins of Judith)

You see the similarities … right?

Panos Evangelopoulos, “Judith and Holofernes,” 2008, Oil on canvas,                   57 x 51 cm,

Both paintings have at least two people – a male and a female – and the female has her arm raised.   And there are legs sticking out …

However, the first painting depicts an active struggle between Judith and Holofernes in the nude while the second … well, basically she is sneaking up on a dude that is passed out fully clothed with the chalice still in his hand.

Bartolomeo Salvestrini, “Judith and Holofernes,” c. 1620-33, Oil on canvas,                  172 x132 cm, auctioned by Villa la Ferdinanda, Florence (4/10/1969)

Yep.  Definitely difficult to tell these two apart.
