Boy With A Basket Of Fruit
Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is a reproduction of Caravaggio’s “Boy with a Basket of Fruit” of about 1593. This is an early work of Caravaggio who was about twenty-two years old when he created it. It shows the early influence of northern Italian art and has analogies of the earlier painting, Fruit Seller of 1580. The artist teasingly brings the boy to the forefront of the painting, as if offering himself, as well as the basket of fruit. Caravaggio utilizes his trademark use of diagonal light and draws attention to the boy’s thick neck, his right shoulder and the succulent fruit. This masterpiece is an oil on canvas that measures 70 x 67 centimeters. It is n the Galleria Borghese in Rome.
