Judith with the Head of Holofernes

Judith with the Head of Holofernes (after 1613?)

Cristofano Allori (1577-1621)

Vatican Museum, Rome

Replica of the painting kept at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence. Legend had it, and Baldinucci so described, that the face of Judith was a portrait of Allori's lover, La Mazzafirra, the old woman her mother, and the head of Holofernes was a self-portrait.
