Alof de Wignacourt

Fra Alof de Wignacourt (1547 – 14 September 1622) was a French nobleman who was the 54th Grand Master of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem from 10 February 1601 to his death in 1622. Unlike a number of the other Grand Masters, he was popular with the Maltese people.

Amor Vincit Omnia is a painting by the Italian early realist / post-Mannerist artist Caravaggio.

It has therefore been suggested also that the picture is a coded reference to the attainments of ...more on Wikipedia

Bacchus is a painting by Italian Baroque master Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. It is held in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence. The painting shows a youthful Bacchus reclining in classical fashion with grapes and vine leaves in his hair, fingering the drawstring of his loosely-draped robe. On a stone table in front of him is a bowl of fruit and a large carafe of red wine; with his left hand he holds out to the viewer a shallow goblet of the same wine, apparently inviting the viewer to join him. Bacchus was painted shortly after Caravaggio joined the household of his first important patron, Cardinal Del Monte, and reflects the humanist interests of the Cardinal's educated circle. It was not in ...more on Wikipedia
