CARAVAGGIO (Michelangelo Merisi)
(b. 1573, Caravaggio, d. 1610, Porto Ercole)

Oil on wood, 90,5 x 116 cm
Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna

The pianting is one of the rare exceptions in the art of Caravaggio: it is painted on wood instead of canvas. Recent X-ray investigations showed that below the painting there is another representing Venus, Mars and Cupid, executed probably by one of the Mannerist painters.
