A Favorite Painting

08 Feb

I just discovered a new painting which I am quite fond of: “The Fortune Teller” by the Italian painter Caravaggio. I’m not quite sure why I like it; probably because of the young man looking all gallant having his palm read by this woman. I wonder if he realizes he’s being ripped off?
