Judith gives it away

07 Oct

Oh my gawd:  more Russians.   I have a glut of contemporary Russians who have depicted Judith.  She is a very popular girl over there.

So let’s get started with Vasiliy or Basil Ptyuhin

Vasiliy Ptyuhin, “Holofernes,” 2010, Oil on canvas, 100 x 100cm, http://www.artnow.ru

Vasiliy Ptyuhin is primarily an illustrator.   And here he illustrates the opulent tent of Holofernes, who leisurely leans on his fauchion (foreshadowing!) as Judith lifts her veil.   All of her veil.

Apparently, the old maid did not warn Judith about the saying:   “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?”
