Judith and Holofornes by Artemisia Gentileschi music video

June 29, 2009

This painting of Judith beheading Holofornes is by Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1652).  The music is by Barry Mitchell and is performed by the Locrian Ensemble. 

There are at least three different versions of this painting and the two used in this video are from the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte, Naples.  The same  track is used in the video The Dark Art of Caravaggio.  Caravaggio was an artist who influenced Gentileschi and in her Judith and Holofernes both the style and theme show Caravaggio’s influence.
