Salome with the Baptist's Head (ca. 1609/10)


Salome with the Baptist's Head (ca. 1609/10)
Caravaggio 1573 – 1610
oil on canvas (91 × 167 cm) — ca. 1609/10
Matthew 14:9 - And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.
Salomé holds the platter upon which the headsman is placing John the Baptist's head. A maid, or maybe Salomé's mother, looks on.
