Botticelli, Judith's Return to Bethulia with the Head of Holofernes, Uffizi Gallery, Florence Italy
Judith's Return

Sandro Botticelli:

« Judith's Return to Bethulia »

Tempera on Wood (28,5 x 20,9 cm) 1470

In the light of dawn, within a delicate landscape, the two women walk in an uncertain step.

What is represented here is not the historical action of the biblical heroine, but the melancholic indeterminacy that follows the event.

What Botticelli shows is instability, the anguish of transcendence, the nostalgic evocation of the past or the melancholic tension that can arise in the face of the future.
