This reproduction on canvas of Narcissus by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is made with the greatest possible care to ensure that the colours are very close to the original painting. Narcissus shows the Greek myth about the beautiful man Narcissus who, whilst walking in the forest, falls in love with his reflection in a pond. However, every time he reaches out to his reflection, it disappears. He pines away beside the pond, unable te embrace his reflection, and eventually dies. Caravaggio portrays Narcissus hunched over the pond, his hand cupping the water possibly in an attempt to embrace his reflection.
As we see more often in Caravaggio’s work, the background of the painting is dark, whereas Narcissus is bathed in light, almost like an actor in a play. He has a look of melancholy on his face, almost as if he knows the impossibility of his desire.
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610), Narcissus c. 1599, Oil on canvas, 110x92cm.
