Although described by contemporaries as "a music piece,” this picture presents an allegory of music in terms of a contemporary performance; Cupid’s presence signals its allegorical intention. The costumes have a vaguely classical look and Caravaggio included his self-portrait in the second boy from the right. Trained in Lombardy, Caravaggio initially made his reputation in Rome with paintings of half-length figures, such as this one, which was painted for his first great patron, Cardinal Francesco del Monte.
