image of Oud Holland - Journal for Art of the Low Countries

A painting has appeared on the market (notes 2 and 3) of Judith showing Holofernes' head to the people of Bcthulia (fig. I). Correspondences with a signed painting by Gillis Coignet (fig. 2) and a remark made by Karel van Mander (note 6) supply convincing grounds for attributing the work to Coignet. Common to both paintings are the structure of the faces, flaws in the technique which have caused 'Frühsprung' (figs. 3 -4, 5 -6) and the treatment of some textiles (figs, 7-8), A third, very similar painting was sold in 1995 (fig.9; note 9). The whereabouts of a fourth painting (fig. 10) which bears a strong resemblance to the aformcntioncd ones, arc unknown. The latter two paintings are probably products of Coignet's workshop, which was known to consist of several co-workers (note 12).
