Beautiful, I'd never seen this painting of his before.

(...and the grapes look scrumptious!)

Thank you :)
I love the intensity and the throughgoing realism in his paintings, and these fruits and leaves look unbelievablly real, more real than real thing, a perfection.

I knew you would love the grapes Gabbi ;)

I love caravaggio! He's one of my favourites ever..and I'm facinated by his life he seemed like a real trubbelmaker when he was alive!

Yes his life was so dramatic, so was his personality and that shows in his paintings very clearly.
Thank you mothersvea!

Together with Vermeer, Caravaggio is my favorite painter. His works are always so expressive, intense.

Vermeer is one of my favorite painters too!
Thank you Mary-Laure.
