Alfred George Stevens has graced these pages twice before. Once with a beatific portrait of Judith (“Judith is beautific“) and once with this same model shown today (“Judith the model“). He obviously had a high opinion of the heroine.
I still cannot find any confirmation that Judith ever made it to the dome of St. Paul’s, so I am assuming she did not. And then to be stuck back in storage … how sad. The V&A also owns the 24 cm plaster cast sketch model, also in storage. But hey! At least she gets remembered here.
See you at the V&A!
