Judith Slaying Holofernes
After all of the paintings and sculptures, this painting was so different, I thought I would share. One of the first women to be a successful painter (this is not her only work, ha ha), the story behind this painting is as interesting as the painting itself. Apparently raped by one of her father's associates, then refusing to marry her, and bashing her honor in the court, this painting may show her rage at her treatment by men. Other works:
Well, since I've spent 7 hours on this stuff, I think I'm done for now.
Enjoy your Labor Day!
