Judith switch hits

06 Mar

Francisco Masriera Y Manovens, “Judith,” 1889, Oil on tablex, 32.3 x 21 cm, auctioned by Subastas Segre, May 24, 2011 (Lot 56), Madrid, Spain

First up is Francisco Masriera y Manovens – from a group of Catalan artists that made an international reputation with Orientalism.   In this Judith, his luminous and strong colors are obvious in her attire.  And then her attitude with right hand on her hip and the left on the hilt of the fauchion.

Emmanuel Hannaux, “Judith with the Head of Holofernes,” Bronze, patinated, 69 cm high, auctioned by Nagel, Mar 26, 2009 (Lot 1098 ), Nuremberg, Germany

Next is Emmanuel Hannaux – who specialized in busts, classical figures and allegorical groups.    In this Judith, there is no colorful clothing but her attitude is the same – with her left hand on her hip and the right on the hilt of the fauchion.

What a talent.
