Judith with the Head of Holofernes

Unknown Artist

A composition of many figures before a background of classical architecture. Judith stands at right, in a yellow and blue dress, gesturing toward a man in blue robes who holds the head of Holofernes at center. Nearby are several other figures, including soldiers, a priest, a woman with a small child, and an animal. In the background, at right, a group of horsemen ride under an arch, holding aloft a banner with white and red stripes.
