I last tackled Veronese on August 14, 2011. He is obviously quite a storyteller – and quite enthralled with the story of Judith.
Of these two executions, the first is most intriguing. I love the little dog and the cat sleeping in the corner – how domestic! And I love the two Ancients begging Judith to accept this Mission. Grovel, dudes, grovel. But most of all, I love the two women behind her who seem to be laughing at the Ancients as Judith wags her finger in their faces.
But one thing bothers me: why does Judith’s house have no ceiling? Is this the style of Bethulian architecture? Or was there a recent tornado?
