Judith and Holofernes - Kehinde Wiley (2012) #update #wcw #holofernes

The lustrous sheen of Judith’s silvery satin dress makes up for the lack of theatricality. Depicted here is the moment after the Jewish heroine had bedded and beheaded the Assyrian general, Holofernes. ‘Judith’ c. 1683 by Eglon Hendrik van der Neer.🖼 #vanderneer #dutchart #dutchgoldenage #17thcentury #17thcenturyart #arthistory #fineart #religiouspainting #bookofjudith #oldtestament #bible #holofernes #heroine #judithbeheadingholofernes #pearl #pearls #judithholofernes #satin #satindress #dress #fashion #textiletuesday #silver #shine #splendour #opalescent #sword #coolasacucumber #latergram

Two scenes from a stained glass window designed by Dirk Crabeth in the Sint Janskerk in Gouda (the Netherlands) showing Judith, after she decapitated Holofernes. This story comes from the Book of Judith in the Bible: Judith, a beautiful widow, is able to enter the tent of Holofernes because of his desire for her. Holofernes was an Assyrian general who was about to destroy Judith's home, the city of Bethulia in Israel. Overcome with drink, he passes out and is decapitated by Judith. This story was very popular in Renaissance art, among others because of the combination of sex and violence.
.
This window was designed in 1571, three years after the start of the Eighty Years' War in 1568. It therefore refers primarily to the brave fight of the Seventeen Provinces – which included the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and a part of Northern France – against a foreign power: in this case Philip II of Spain. At the time, the Sint Janskerk was just rebuilt after the big fire of 1552 and was decorated with impressive stained glass windows. The city authorities initially took the side of Spain, but under pressure from the Holland province had to switch to the side of the Seventeen Provinces. Their precondition that religious freedom would be guaranteed in the city, was respected only a few years.
.
In 1573 the Catholic religion was forbidden everywhere in Holland and the Sint Janskerk was converted to Protestantism. The 45 altars and most sculptures, considered as idolatry by the Protestants, were removed. Its huge stained glass windows, however, were left intact.

A Bible story I missed in Sunday school, Judith took matters into her own hands when her city, Bethulia was under threat by the general Holofernes. She took advantage of his desire for her and when he passed out from intoxication, this #badass slit his throat and chopped off his head. I had to look this story up because it's a common depiction in #renaissanceart and the faces were strikingly similar in all of them. I particularly liked this one because of the look of #ruthless #triumph on her face. #rockon Judith, for not letting #theman keep you and your community down. I'd like to hear more stories of #empoweredwomen in history #standingup and making their voices heard, #kickingass and #takingheads
