Caravaggio’s Bacchus NFT Collection by Nicholas V. K.
Caravaggio’s Bacchus NFT Collection by Nicholas V. K.
Inspired by Caravaggio’s BacchusNicholas V. K. created a unique NFT collection that is available to buy on Rarible and OpenSea.
One of Caravaggio’s early patrons and Italian Diplomat, Cardinal Del Monte, commissioned him to create this masterpiece.
Bacchus was the Greek deity of wine, inebriation, fertility, and theatre, also known as Dionysus. Commonly portrayed in a drunken state; nevertheless, Caravaggio’s Bacchus seems calm and self-contained.
Bacchus (c. 1596) is an oil painting by Italian Baroque master Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610) commissioned by Cardinal Del Monte

This painting is housed in Le Gallerie degli Uffizi in Florence.
Caravaggio’s pupil, Mario Minniti, may have been the model for Bacchus, as he had already posed for The Musicians, Boy with a Basket of Fruit, The Fortune Teller, Lute Player, and The Calling of Saint Matthew.
Some critics thought believed that Caravaggio used himself as a model and that was presumably based on the fact that Bacchus is offering the glass of wine with his left hand.
