Caravaggio’s The Fortune Teller

The man on the right seems to be of high importance. The way his posture and the look on his face shows that he may be a general of some kind or maybe the kings’ son. He is getting his fortune told, but he thinks he already knows what his fortune is. The women to the left is the fortune teller. She has the look on her face that you would see on maids in movies. She smiles at the man, but inside thinks that he has a big head and does not deserve to be where he is.
