"Judith beheading Holofernes", Artemisia Gentileschi (1620)

#painting #baroque #tenebrism #caravaggisti

After the Resurrection of Christ, as described in the Gospel according to Luke, two disciples of Jesus were on their way to a town called Emmaus, near Jerusalem. Talking about what had happened, a man joined them on their way and talked to them. They did not realize that it was Christ himself. When they had reached Emmaus, the two disciples asked him to join them for supper. There they recognized him to be the resurrected Jesus. The 'Supper of Emmaus' has been depicted quite often. This painting by a successor of Caravaggio, painted around 1621, is a very special one.

Dutch by birth, #MatthiasStom traveled to Rome where he belonged to an important group of #Caravaggisti (followers of #Caravaggio). Like Caravaggio, they ranked naturalism and drama high in their pictorial subjects. In this detail of Stom’s "Christ Crowned with Thorns," a single candle illuminates a nightmare scene of torment. Such a device, favored by the Caravaggisti, created the strong effects of light and dark. 🕯🕯🕯

Two great thinkers - 'Democritus' by Hendrick Bloemaert and 'Beethoven' by Fix-Masseau. Love the subtle interplay of gesture here between these two works, celebrating two immortal minds. #Democritus #Beethoven #greatminds #philosopher #oldmasters #bloemaert #utrecht #caravaggisti #fixmasseau #sculpture #agnews #agnewsgallery

Popped into @whitworthart on the offchance today to discover a new favourite artist - Raqib Shaw. Baroque, bonkers - cross the Chapman brothers with Kashmiri masters, Japanese printmakers, Holbein, Bosch and the eminent Caravaggists and you're part way there. This shit is nuts and gorgeous. He even made his own Midsummer Nights Dream wallpaper for the exhibition walls. Check the Francisco de Zurbaran lamb reference, Prado fans. Extraordinary...💀👺👹

It's no secret that, however far you think feminism and art has come today, it was most certainly a boys club upto and including the 18th Century. The woman who painted this work most certainly broke the mold. Artemesia Gentileschi was not content with painting subjects considered traditionally 'suitable' for us meger females, such as still life; but instead chose to go her own way and paint history, mythological and biblical scenes. She put the tragedy of her life (which you can research if you choose) into her art. We could all learn a lesson from Artemesia Gentileschi "When they give you lined paper, write the other way." #ArtemesiaGentileschi #JudithBeheadingHolofernes#Caravaggisti #Baroque #Feminism #FeministIcon #SlayTheBalance #HistoryOfArt #ArtHistory #ArtHistorianOnTour #Art #Painting #Chiaroscuro #Dynamism
