Two compelling paintings by Caravaggio added to my stock art collection

This week I added a pair of sensuous and dreamy pieces of art by the 16th century Italian painter Caravaggio to my stock art catalog. Spend a moment enjoying and comparing The Musicians and The Roman God of wine Bacchus by Caravaggio. 

Obviously Caravaggio was using the same model for both of these works of art. I suspect he had a crush on the young man who appears quite at peace with his life of wine and pleasure.

I've been slowly building a catalog of royalty free vintage and fine art images. I get most of my images by browsing through vintage books and art prints that I obtain at estate sales and auctions. To view larger images of these fine pieces of art, visit my stock art catalog where you can purchase high resolution jpegs for your projects if you need to.
