What specifically does the curator team of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art state about the artwork created by Francesco Cairo? (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Herodias—the mother of Salome—swoons at the sight of the head of John the Baptist, which she had urged her daughter to demand on a platter as a reward for her dance. Unfortunately, the bottom of the canvas was cut to eliminate the grisly detail of John’s head. Cairo made something of a specialty of grisly subjects, combining acts of violence and a kind of morbid eroticism. The picture was painted in Turin, where the artist was court painter to Duke Vittorio Amedeo I of Savoy (1587–1637) between 1633 and 1637.
