Baroque Birthday

The great Italian painter Caravaggio was born on 29 September 1571. We saw his painting of the Deposition from the Cross (also known as the Entombment) earlier this year in Rome, in Chiesa Nuova (literally New Church). Actually this one is an 18th century copy, since the original was moved to the Vatican. But we saw that one too, and it looks exactly the same.
