      Salome with the Head of Saint the Baptist by Guido Reni, 1939/42, Chicago Institute of Art. "It represents an episode from the New Testament that had long been popular in Italian art. Having pleased her stepfather, Herod, with her dancing, the seductive Salome receives the head of Saint John the Baptist as her reward. The combination of religiosity, violence, and eroticism appealed to the morbid aspects of 17th century sensibility.
