Abstract:
The Museum’s newest acquisition of contemporary art is Kehinde Wiley’s "Judith and Holofernes" (2012). Wiley is known for his monumental portraits of African Americans placed in historical poses and settings appropriated from Old Master paintings. Wiley is known for critiquing the racism of art history and this portrait references a 17th century painting by Giovanni Baglione, Judith and the Head of Holofernes (1608). Wiley’s painting can be interpreted as a comment on racial and gender identity and inequity, the representation of women throughout art history, and society’s ideals for beauty.
