Why is it canonical?

The Baroque and the influence of Caravaggio reached the Netherlands along a somewhat piece by piece manner. From Italy, the methods and style reached Antwerp, where an artist name Hendrick Terbrugghen was born. Terbugghen ultimately settled in Utrecht, and brought the Italian style with him. This painting shows a clear influence of Caravaggio and thus evidence that his style had reached Holland.
