Judith was the biblical heroine who seduced and then decapitated General Holofernes in order to save her home city of Bethulia from destruction by the enemy, the Assyrian army. The subject was quite popular from the Middle Ages onwards, as an example of virtue overcoming vice. However, this work is not timeless allegory, since Judith is depicted as a Viennese society beauty. Judith herself has in a sense been decapitated. The heavy gold choker she wears, fashionable in early twentieth-century Vienna, rather brutally separates her own head from her body. Her clothes half conceal, half reveal her body. The stylized gold band at the bottom of the picture looks as if it might be an ornamental hem to her garment, but then cuts across her abdomen like a flat belt.

Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) was an Austrian decorative painter and creator of erotic art that greatly added to Art Nouveau and modernism as a whole

Klimt was most influence by Japanese art and methods. His work was constantly criticized for being too sensual and erotic and his symbolism too deviant

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Klimt is one the most expensive paintings ever sold.
