Credit is a series of high-end prints, revisiting famous works of great artists. By digitally altering parts of their structure, they link with modern techniques, as a contemporary comment and tribute to their mastery.

Each giclee print is hand-signed and printed on archival Fine Art paper, with white margins (2cm) on each side. High quality fixative spray is applied, which prevents yellowing and fading caused by time and exposure to light. You’ll get it wrapped in protective nylon sleeve, enclosed in a cardboard box. More sizes and framing can be made available, just get in touch with the gallery!

Judith Beheading Holofernes is a work by Caravaggio, painted in 1598-99. The widow Judith first charms the Assyrian general Holofernes, then decapitates him in his tent. The deutero-canonical Book of Judith tells how Judith saved her people by seducing and killing Holofernes, the Assyrian general. Judith gets Holofernes drunk, then seizes his sword and decapitates him: “”Approaching to his bed, she took hold of the hair of his head, and said, Strengthen me, O Lord God of Israel, this day! And she smote twice upon his neck with all her might, and she took away his head from him.”” (Judith, 13:7-8)
