Jan Sanders van Hemessen: Judith (1540)

Vivat! Crescat! Floreat!

There are only two fully nude Judiths (of the classical era, that is) I’m aware of: Hans Baldung Grien’s and this one, which was painted by Jan Sanders van Hemessen in 1540. Interesting enough, it also seems to be the only female nude by this artist.
