Not only that, they're speculating that the lead in his paint may have hastened his demise.

I didn't know they were missing either! I read a novel about Caravaggio some years ago and don't recall how it ended, but given his "turbulent" life, it wouldn't have surprised me to hear he had died in a street brawl.

I love his paintings!
