caravaggio's boys

Caravaggio, Michelangelo Merisi Da. Boy with a Basket of Fruit. Detail. 1593. Oil. Galleria Borghese, Rome, Italy.

Caravaggio, Michelangelo Merisi Da. Bacchus. Detail. 1595. Oil on canvas. Uffizi Gallery, Florence, Italy.

I love Caravaggio because he painted these beautiful, moody, intense works of art and he also did this:

It is called “Boy Bitten By a Lizard.” Look at that face. That is the face I make when I see someone having a bad opinion on the internet. That is the face I make when I see dog poop on the sidewalk. That is the face I make when strange men unexpectedly hit on me.
