Caravaggio Gallery

The Telegraph has posted an online gallery of paintings by one of my favourite artists: Caravaggio (title link). The reason for its sudden interest? A team of anthropologists is hoping to solve the mystery of his burial place. They believe it's in an underground crypt in the small town of Porto Ercole in the Italian region of Tuscany. It will be nice timing if they succeed, because next year is the 400th anniversary of his death. Above is a graphic of Caravaggio's superb painting The Conversion of Mary Magdalen (ca 1599).
