It seems that the Palazzo Barberini may have managed to set a record for the amount of Baroque Beheadings in one room. I was bemused to see this press photo for the aforementioned The Challenge of Judith exhibition in Rome. This temporary collection of Judiths by the likes of Caravaggio, Artemisia, Fontana and others looks rather impressive (or terrifying) indeed.

The show will run until 27th March 2022.
