Except no.2 is Carivaggio. Come on tumblr the entire point of Gentileschi’s Judith was that she was a sturdy, capable woman who was working in killing Holoferenes, as opposed to the reticent, willowy Judith traditionally depicted in representations.

Carivaggio’s Judith doesn’t want to be there, Gentileschi’s Judith reflects the artist getting her revenge on the man who raped her.
