Here Caravaggio lived a happy and prolific period in respect of commissions, the most important, by a Croatian merchant of Ragusa, Nicholas Radulovic, was the Lady of the Rosary, the iconography of the painting was set by the client himself who at the end no longer bought the work, which was amended by the artist and placed in the Chapel of the Rosary in the church of the Dominicans.
