As art critic Robert Hughes has said, "There was art before him and art after him, and they were not the same". Indeed, Caravaggio is one of history's most fascinating and controversial figures. He is the original bad boy of the art world who brawled his way through life, antagonized patrons and protectors, formed dangerous alliances, followed a questionable moral compass and killed a man in ambiguous circumstances. But somehow, when he was not creating scandal after scandal, fleeing assassins or getting his face mutilated by one of his many enemies, he found time to paint and revolutionize Art. And he did this in a time when the all-powerful Vatican was under assault and had little patience for rebellious souls and controversy. It was a hot July day in 1610 when Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, one of the greatest painters of all times, vanished. Soon his death was announced but how he died has remained to this day a mystery. His body had disappeared and along with it any helpful evidence. And the rumour mill started. Had he been murdered? Died anonymously of disease, of wounds sustained in a fight? Theories upon theories were elaborated but none could conclusively shed light on the mystery. Until today. Now, a team of Italian scientists has found what may well be his remains and is calling on all the tools of modern science to bring an end to a 400 year old mystery. This is CSI, renaissance style.
