Judith and the Head of Holofernes

0 out of 5


The model for the painting was Adele Bloch-Bauer who also posed for Klimt as the Woman in Gold.
The theme of Judith and Holofernes inspired hundreds of works of art. Klimt’s version is probably the only version that does not depict any blood, sword or heroism that was commonly a theme in other versions.
The painting is considered as the beginning of Gustav Klimt’s golden period when he used gold prominently in his paintings.
