A Day for Painters

Caravaggio's "Narcissus" painted 1597-1599 (LEO Design)

29 September seems to be a day for painters.  Venetian Baroque artist Jacopo Comin (aka: Tintoretto, 1518), Milanese bad boy Michelangelo Merisi (aka: Caravaggio, 1571), and Parisian Rococo painter François Boucher (1703) were all born on this day.

Sadly, artists have left us on this day, as well:  Charles Addams in 1988 and Roy Lichtenstein in 1997.
