Amor Vincit Omnia (“Love Conquers All”, known in English by a variety of names including Amor Victorious, Victorious Cupid, Love Triumphant, Love Victorious, or Earthly Love) is a painting by the Italian early realist / post-Mannerist artist Caravaggio.
Amor Vincit Omnia shows Amor, the Roman Cupid, wearing dark eagle wings, half-sitting on or perhaps climbing down from what appears to be a table. Scattered around are the emblems of all human endeavours — violin and lute, armour, coronet, square and compasses, pen and manuscript, bay leaves, and flower, tangled and trampled under Cupid’s foot. The painting illustrates the line from Virgil’s Eclogues X.69, Omnia vincit amor et nos cedamus amori (“Love conquers all; let us all yield to love!”). A musical manuscript on the floor shows a large “V”. It has therefore been suggested also that the picture is a coded reference to the attainments of Marchese Vincenzo Giustiniani: his Genoese family ruled Chios (until the island’s capture by the Turks) in 1622, hence the coronet; the cultivated Marchese also wrote about music and painting (pen, manuscript and musical instruments), was constructing an imposing new palazzo (geometrical instruments), studied astronomy (astral sphere), and was praised for his military prowess (armour). The symbology thus holds the possible reading: Vincenzo Conquers All. Giustiniani is said to have prized it above all other works in his collection.

 I Bari è un dipinto ad olio su tela di cm 94 x 131 realizzato nel 1594 dal pittore italiano Caravaggio. È conservato al Kimbell Art Museum di Fort Worth, che lo ha acquistato nel 1987 da un collezionista privato.

L’opera di Caravaggio, I Bari, rappresenta sulla tela una scena in cui, due giovani imbroglioni tentano di raggirare l’inconsapevole vittima di turno. Il baro è visto di spalle, mentre estrae delle carte di nascosto, mentre il suo compare, posto frontalmente, gli suggerisce la soluzione vincente.

Caravaggio, in questa opera, è attento alla rappresentazione di ogni più piccolo particolare, prediligendo un’ambientazione inesistente, luministica. Il committente del quadro, fu il cardinale Francesco Maria Del Monte.

Conservato alla Galleria degli Uffici di Firenze, “Bacco” è un pittura ad olio su tela di cm 95 x 85 realizzato tra il 1596 e il 1597 da Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio.

Fu il cardinale Del  Monte a commissionare l’opera a Caravaggio, per donarlo a Ferdinando I de’ Medici in occasione delle nozze del figlio Cosino II. Il dipinto allude, con un velato senso dell’ironia, alla nota frugalità del Granduca, che era notoriamente astemio.
