Acrylic on wood - 7" x 5" - (C)BruceDocker,2008 $100.00
This is a detail from the spectacular and gruesome "Judith beheading Holofernes" by Caravaggio. His painting is filled with emotion and terror. With this detail I am focusing just on Holofernes and that moment when the last of his life is slipping away as depicted by Caravaggio. Virtue overcoming evil. The original is from 1599 and amazingly, it is from early in his career.
