Caravaggio's Bones

Caravaggio, The Chiaroscuro Homo, has been exhumed and positively IDed by Italian scientists. Researchers are 85% sure the bones in an ossuary in a church in Porto Ercole belong to the Renaissance master. Using "DNA, carbon dating and other analysis" (What "other analysis"? Gaydar? The Moroder Test?) scientissimos are somewhat confident they've the right corpse.

Just in time for Pride Month, I guess.

No word yet on who will be commissioned to paint a gruesome still life of the artist's remains.
