    Copyright: Public Domain


    Judith dines with the enemy warlord Holofernes. He is impressed by her beauty and feels a strong desire for her. He drinks too much wine, so that later in his tent he promptly falls asleep. In the museum in Gotha is another panel of similar size where Cranach depicted what happened in the tent. Cranach set the scene in a German landscape, with the city of Wittenberg in the background.
