Judith II by Gustav Klimt - Art Poster  

Judith and the Head of Holofernes (also known as Judith II) is an oil painting which depicts the biblical character of Judith holding the severed head of Holofernes.

When Klimt tackles the biblical theme of Judith, the historical course of art has already codified its main interpretation and preferential representation. In fact, many paintings exist, describing the episode in a heroic manner, especially expressing Judith's courage and her virtuous nature. Judith appears as God's instrument of salvation, but the violence of her action cannot be denied and the Head of Holofernes (1901).Klimt deliberately ignores any narrative reference whatsoever, and concentrates his pictorial rendering solely on to Judith, so much so that he cuts off Holofernes' head at the right margin. And there is no trace of bloodied sword, as if the heroine would have used a different weapon: an omission that legitimates association with Salome. The moment preceding the killing — the seduction of Nebuchadnezzar's general — seems to coalesce with the conclusive part of the story.

This amazingly and instantly recognizable work is perfect for a lover of fine art.
