Caravaggio, "The Lute Player", c. 1596, Wildenstein Collection, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The Italian Baroque master (1571-1610) composed three versions of his madrigal on lost love. In addition to this one (Wildenstein), a second is in the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia, and a third — which did not come to light until 2007 — is in Badminton House, a large country house in Badminton, Gloucestershire, England.
