Narcissus was arguably painted by Caravaggio, apparently during his years around the Contarelli chapel; it marks a unique theme for Caravaggio, that of illusion versus the real world, seen here as two halves of the artist's canvas. Theme inspired by Ovid's "Methamorphoses".
Oil on canvas; currently hanging at Gallerie Nazionale d'Arte Antica.
