Judith at the Banquet of Holofernes
Oil on canvas. 1634
Rembrandt (Rembrandt Harmensz. Van Rijn)

In the past various authors have expressed their scepticism about the attribution of the painting to Rembrandt. However, the Rembrandt Research Project includes it in the Corpus of 1986 as an original work, and this is supported by the technical study conducted at the Museo del Prado that year. As for the signature, the unsteadiness of the stroke and, above all, the yellow colour make it dubious.

Judith and Holofernes
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1577
Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti (Workshop Of)

Traditionally catalogued as a work from Tintoretto´s youth, the dating of this painting has been moved to the late fifteen-seventies by recent studies. The artist draws on the Bible story (Judith 13, 9-11) but his reading of the subject is not erotic. Here, Judith wears her finest clothing to seduce Holofernes, rather than appearing nude, as was habitual in Italian Renaissance art. The action take
