A Portrait of Michelangelo Caravaggio (Ottavio Leoni, 1621)

In a church in Tuscany in western Italy, scientists think that they found the remains of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. According to experts, the likelihood that the remains belong to the great painter is 85%, the BBC reported. Caravaggio was one of the greatest masters of the Baroque, he died at the age of 40 in 1610 and was buried in Tuscany.

St Jerome (Michelangelo da Caravaggio, 1606)… what good would I be if I posted something about Caravaggio without one of his paintings?
