After Cristofano ALLORI (Florence,1577-1621), probably 18th centuryJudith with the head of HolofernesOil on canvas(restored and repainted) 141,5 x 114 cmProvenance: Belgian Collection. Acquired by the family of the present owners in an abbey in Spain around 1950. One subject, that of Judith with the Head of Holofernes, has already been explored several times by the Florentine artist Cristofano Allori, master of the Baroque style in Tuscany, many versions of which are known to be preserved in several museums and private collections. The work presented here reproduces that of the Palazzo Pitti in Florence (inv. 1912 n. 96), the most beautiful and spontaneous of the known versions, in particular by the resemblance of Judith with the portrait of Allori's mistress, the Mazzafirra.
