Michelangelo Caravaggio The Musicians Art Print
ABOUT THIS PIECE
Baroque Painter Michelangelo Caravaggio's The Musicians was created in 1595 and the painting is in Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The original size of the work is 92 x 118,5 cm and is made of oil on canvas.
While Cupid’s presence confirms this is an allegory representing Music, Caravaggio’s painting equally engages with contemporary performance and individualized models, including a self-portrait in the second boy from the right. Caravaggio’s contemporary Giovanni Baglione recorded that the artist painted “a concert, with some youths portrayed from nature very well” immediately after joining the household of his first major patron, Cardinal Francesco Maria del Monte..
The Artist: Caravaggio (1571 - 1610) was an Italian painter active in Rome for most of his artistic life. His paintings combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, which had a formative influence on Baroque painting.
