Oval depicting Judith with the head of Holofernes
Late 17th / 18th century
Oil painting on canvas applied to wood
20x15 cm, framed 55x40 cm

In a wooden frame decorated with acanthus leaves in the Baroque style of Louis XIV.

With a slight smile, the female figure who embodies the Jewish heroine Judith, her head adorned with a white turban and dressed in elegant eighteenth-century clothes, she proudly displays her trophy of victory, the head of the powerful Holofernes. The small painting in question consists of a light canvas glued on an oval wooden support, embellished with symmetrical leaves that make up the sumptuous frame in a harmonious dialogue between painting and carving. & Nbsp;
