new art history earrings ✨ (cw: ec, sexual assault) 

i bought these earrings 2 months ago from a one-person shop i found on tiktok and i am 1000% obsessed w them

they’re miniature canvases of ‘judith slaying holofernes’ by artemisia gentileschi, my fave baroque painter.

some fun art history for those who don’t know her: this is a self portrait of her as judith, and the man she’s beheading is holofernes painted as her father’s colleague, who sexually assaulted her. artemisia is praxis.
