Judith the model returns

14 Apr

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.

 

Judith (1862) Stevens

Alfred George Stevens, Model of “Judith” for the Dome of St Paul’s, c.1862, Bronze, 42.5 x 22.5 cm, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England, UK

 

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!
