  • Caravaggio paints "Boy Peeling Fruit"

    Event occurs in 1592 A.D. and ends in 1593 A.D.

    Boy Peeling Fruit is a painting by the Italian Baroque master Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610) painted circa 1592-1593.

    This is the earliest known work by Caravaggio, painted soon after his arrival in Rome from his native Milan in mid 1592. His movements in this period are not certain. According to his contemporary Giulio Mancini he stayed for a short time with Monsignor Pandulfo Pucci in the Palazzo Colonna, but disliked the way Pucci treated him and left after a few months. (Pucci fed his boarders exclusively on greens, and Caravaggio referred to him later as 'Monsignor Salad'). He copied religious pictures for Pucci, (none survive), and apparently did a few pieces of his own for personal sale, of which Boy Peeling a Fruit would be the only known example. The piece may also date from slightly later, when he was working for Giuseppe Cesari, the "cavaliere d'Arpino".

    As Caravaggio is said to have been painting only "flowers and fruit" for d'Arpino, this would again be a personal piece done for sale outside the workshop, but it was among the works seized from d'Alpino by Cardinal Scipione Borghese in 1607, together with two other early Caravaggios, the Young Sick Bacchus and the Boy with a Basket of Fruit - it is not known how these works came to be in Cesari's collection at the time.

What's this?

TimeVibe is a free, event-driven, community-edited, historical timeline. It provides an easy, intuitive way of visualizing our universe's history, from it's birth 13.8 billion years ago, to this day. It's also a way of socially sharing vibes with your friends and contributing to the picture our species has of history. And, it can also be seen as a news portal, with all vibes occuring today. Above all, it's an educational website.

So what's a vibe?

Simply put, a vibe is a minor or major disturbance along our history. A noticeable event that occured in the past as far back as 13.8 bn years ago (like the Planck epoch), still occurs (like the Icarus Project For Canberra Arts Community), or will occur as far into the future as 2200 A.D. (like NASA-ESA's James Webb Space Telescope – JWST).
