Artemisia Gentileschi

Gentileschi, Judith and Holofernes

I am away with the Quakers. Meanwhile, here is some Artemisia Gentileschi: Judith and Holofernes. She likes men losing: she also painted Jael and Sisera. The story of Lot’s daughters being unmarried, thinking they would have no children, so getting their father drunk to have sex with him repels me: Gentileschi gives them dignity.
