Francisco de Goya, Judith and Holofernes (Judit y Holofernes)


Museo del Prado, Madrid

Date: 1820 - 1823
Technique: Mixed technique on wall, 146 cm x 84 cm

This painting forms a pair with Saturn, even though it inverts the terms: here it is a woman who kills a man. It represents a biblical scene (Judith 13) in which Judith cuts off the head of Holofernes. (Valeriano Bozal, Goya-Black paintings)
