Thought Caravaggio has a serious problem of gimballing, he got a job in a church and he proved himself. Caravaggio’s art is made from darkness and light. His pictures present spotlit moments of extreme and often agonized human experience.
The whereabouts of the artwork are still unknown. A reproduction currently hangs in its place in the Oratory of San Lorenzo. 
The bare facts seem to be that on 28 July an anonymous avviso (private newsletter) from Rome to the ducal court of Urbino reported that Caravaggio was dead. Three days later another avviso said that he had died of fever on his way from Naples to Rome. A poet friend of the artist later gave 18 July as the date of death, and a recent researcher claims to have discovered a death notice showing that the artist died on that day of a fever in Porto Ercole, near Grosseto in Tuscany. 
Caravaggio painted the scene twice. The first canvas, created in Rome, now belongs to the National Gallery of Ancient Art, Palazzo Barberini, Rome
This second version of Caravaggio (Michele Angelo Merigi da Caravaggio, 1571 – 1610)’s Judith Beheading Holofernes was discovered in a French attic in a Toulouse farmhouse in 2014 where it had been stored dusty, unnoticed, and ignored despite a previous burglary, for over 100 years. Now fully restored, it will be auctioned in Toulouse in June 2019 with a guide price of over £100,000,000 and, ahead of the sale, is on view at London’s Colnaghi gallery from 1 March for just over a week before exhibition in New York and Paris.
Rome has several spots with masterpieces of Caravaggio (1573-1610), one of the most significant Italian painters. Roman museums and galleries contain artworks that are famous for his dramatic use of chiaroscuro and the influence on the Baroque style of painting.
Entrance to churches in Rome is free from admission, so you can see several masterpieces by Caravaggio without paying anything.
The remains of the great painter may help us understand why he was habitually violent.
Caravaggio was born in Milan, and trained there as a painter under Simone Peterzano who had himself trained under Titian. In his twenties, he left Milan for Rome in 1592, in flight after “certain quarrels” and the wounding of a police officer. He arrived in Rome, according to contemporaries, “naked and extremely needy … without fixed address and without provision … short of money.” When he arrived in Rome he was to find there was a large demand for paintings to fill the many huge new churches and palazzos being built at the time. It was also a period when the Church was searching for a stylistic alternative to Mannerism in religious art that was tasked to counter the threat of Protestantism. Caravaggio’s innovation was a radical naturalism that combined close physical observation with a dramatic, even theatrical, use of chiaroscuro which came to be known as tenebrism (the shift from light to dark with little intermediate value).
