Narcissus by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. This is another painting of Narcissus, and I think it is a very powerful one. The painting is very dramatic, and portrays Narcissus in a darker light. There are no etherial elements in this painting that would lighten the image up. It is very dark, and portrays his narcissism as more of a bad thing.

Sacred Love Versus Profane Love (1602–03) by Giovanni Baglione. Intended as an attack on his hated enemy, the artist Caravaggio, it shows a boy (hinting at Caravaggio's homosexuality) on one side, a devil with Caravaggio's face on the other, and between an angel representing pure, meaning non-erotic, love.

Caravaggio, Saint Catherine of Alexandria, 1598,  the light is so delicate in paintings by Caravaggio. The way he could paint was in strong contrast with how he lived his life.

Just stunning - Caravaggio. Detail from 'The Denial of St. Peter'. A master of Chiaroscuro.
