Trittico Salomè

In the era that also saw the Salome of Wilde and Beardsley, three painters of the same name and living in the same era, paid their art to the myth of the killer princess. In love with the enemy who denies her her love for her, Salome goes so far as to kill the Baptist in order to have him. She snatches from Herod the promise of getting everything she wants and, once the dance is finished, she asks for the head of the beloved / hated John. And, in that moment, the phrase that Wilde, distorting the sacred texts, makes Salome say: “I kissed your mouth, Iokanaan”.
