About the original artwork
Boy with a Basket of Fruit

Boy With a Basket of Fruit is an earlier painting by Caravaggio, made on his own accord. Therefore, he had no restrictions from a commissioner. Contrary to Boy Bitten By A Lizard, there is no action in this painting.

It is a serene picture, with a boy calmly looking at the spectator while holding a basket overflowing with ripe fruit. The abundance and the ripeness of the fruit links to the boy’s youthfulness. The fruit is painted very precisely, it has even been analysed by horticultural experts to determine which specific fruits are portrayed. Most likely, Caravaggio’s goal with this painting was to show his artistic skill in order to attract more commissioners.
