JUDITH AND HOLOFERNES
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 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.
