Robert Anning Bell’s Herodias

herodias.jpg

Artist Robert Anning Bell (1863–1933) chooses to depict Salomé’s mother rather than the more usual daughter in a slightly Pre-Raphaelite take on the familiar theme. This print appears in volumes 8–10 of Studio International, and seeems to have been a one-off although I’ll be happy to be hear of any other depictions of the story by Mr Bell.
