About The Artwork

JUDITH AND HOLOFERNES triptych 2014 acrylic and oil on canvas 370 (w) x 120 (h) x 4cm About the inspiration and the story behind: In older days the Assyrian army was about to destroy the city Bethulia, home of the religious beautiful widow Judith. She wanted to save her hometown and the residents and ask God for patronage. At night she entered the tent of Holofernes, the Assyrian general, and offered him wine and her body. He desired Judith, but she made him drunk. Holofernes passed out and was decapitated by Judith, who took his head away in a basket. Afterwards the hostile army was panic-stricken and fled (Book of Judith, Old Testament). * * * * This triptych was selected and featured by Saatchi Art and is part of the Saatchi Art collection NEW THIS WEEK (September 2017).This artwork was also featured by Saatchi Art and selected for the 'Saatchi Art - The Other Art Fair Los Angeles' Online Studio' collection ORIGINALS FOR USD 5000+ (April 2020). * * * * LARGE-SIZED PAINTINGS. LARGE-SIZED TRIPTYCH. The triptych combines following works and should be "read" from left to right: left part: JUDITH & HOLOFERNES I "Judith" acrylic and oil on canvas, 2014, 100 (w) x 120 (h) x 4 cm center part: JUDITH & HOLOFERNES II "The Decapitation" acrylic and oil on canvas, 2014, 150 (w) x 120 (h) x 4 cm right part: JUDITH & HOLOFERNES III "Holofernes" arylic and oil on canvas, 2014, 100 (w) x 120 (h) x 4 cm * * * * This triptych contains 3 single paintings, each in acrylic and oil on canvas and one with dimensions of 120 (h) x 150 (w) (center part "The Decapitation") and two paintings with 120 (h) x 100 (w) cm (left and right part / "Judith" and "Holofernes"). I prefer a hanging distance each of 10 cm between the 3 single paintings. Complete dimensions of this artwork, including the hanging space between the single paintings: 370 (w) x 120 (h) x 4 cm. * * * * This piece is a true LARGE-SIZED TRILOGY. For a large-scale, aesthetic and colourful impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message. I use exclusively oil and acrylic colours, canvas and wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The three paintings wear my signature on the front and are signed, entitled and dated on the backside and need a single hanging (no backside connections between the paintings). Deliberately the sides (about 4 cm wide) are not part of the painting and show the black painted canvas. The three paintings are ready to hang (on the backsides: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and don’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. The piece will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter. Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only. If you have any questions about this artwork or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work. Warm wishes, Christian

CHRISTIAN BAHR has been a passionate, profound German painter and experienced draftsman for over 35 years, selling his works worldwide. His works can currently be found in private collections and public spaces in the US, Mexico, Canada, UK, China, Thailand, Australia, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Malta, Sweden, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. His atmospheric large paintings are poetry and artistic struggle at the same time. They capture both harmony and conflict, overall reflecting a strong aesthetic. He has participated in many national and international exhibitions. What he believes in: ........................................................................... “Not everything is art. But art is everything and everything breathes art in one way or another. Art is the true beauty of mankind.” ........................................................................... “I work in my studio nearby the big German coastal city of Hamburg, on the North sea. I’m a seeker as a painter, in search of answers. The single human takes center stage. I work constantly, with great passion and discipline on my further artistic way. I have a clear, strong painting philosophy. And I deal with philosophical, mythological as well as with historical subjects in my works.” ........................................................................... “I go my own way in my paintings. I find the source for my inspiration in me. Spontaneous action is the key, my preferred method. I work intuitively and in most cases without previous sketches, because I do not need a creative distance, I only reduce the view of our surroundings. Added value and clarity through abstraction. It must be rough, original, melancholic, dark, and yet at the same time bright, poetic, clear and full of hope. No maybe, no lukewarm. Every moment counts. That's exactly how I paint." ........................................................................... “Painting is a beauty, soul and passion, but sometimes fighting. A fight with myself, an endless struggle for colors and motif in my own conversation, as a rough internal dialogue. There are these days and nights, when I fight for every single brushstroke, when I question every color scheme. But it is good it is not always easy. Because each artistic battle is worthwhile and shows that I am - as an artist - still alive, breathing and developing.“ ...........................................................................
