"Narcissus" is a painting by Italian Baroque master Caravaggio. It depicts the mythological figure of Narcissus, who was punished by the gods for his vanity by falling in love with his own reflection. The painting is characterized by Caravaggio's dramatic use of light and dark, with the contrasts of light and dark adding to the sense of emotional intensity in the scene. The figure of Narcissus is depicted in a highly realistic manner, with his youthful, idealized features and the glistening waters of the pool in which he is gazing. The intricate details of the surrounding vegetation and the ripples in the water also add to the painting's realism and emotional impact. Caravaggio's use of color is also noteworthy, with the warm hues of Narcissus' skin and clothing contrasting against the cool blues and greens of the background. "Narcissus" is considered one of Caravaggio's masterpieces and is widely recognized as a powerful example of Italian Baroque art.
