Violence in Art: Cinematic shots of Judith Beheading Holofernes

The treatment of this violent subject in art is very interesting.

many of the paintings that depict it are disturbing. Some are even too horrible to be a film shot.

Artemisia Gentileschi; Judith is really getting stuck in to this task
CARAVAGGIO; Judith seems a bit squeamish but she’s getting the job done
JOHANN LISS. My favourite; the nastiest. Looking at us like “Yeah, you got a problem?”
Trophime_Bigot; nice little psychopathic smile
