1. Judith and her Maidservant
    Judith Slaying Holofernes

    Last year in my AP Art History class, my friend Jodi and I did a project on the Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi, and these are two of our favorite paintings by her.

    Only expecting to see Renaissance works in Florence, it would be needless to say that I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon Judith and her Maidservant while wandering the Palatine Gallery at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence.

    Then, when I found the Caravaggio room at the Uffizi Gallery, I had a sliver of hope that I might find another of Gentileschi’s works, and was delighted to find the epic Judith Slaying Holofernes

    My dream is to see the painting of Judith Slaying Holofernes in-person someday.
