Caravaggio Ornament

Many artists represented within Mrs. Gardner's collection were influenced by the works of the Italian painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio.

This hand-embroidered ornament of the famous Caravaggio shows him with a palate in one hand, and a sword in the other, representative of his tumultuous life. 

Ornaments of other subjects and artists featured in the Gardner Museum also available. Complete your collection of Gardner Museum-inspired ornaments with Caravaggio!
