Van Gogh

Did
Van Gogh die from cutting off his ear?
No. Vincent Van Gogh, the Dutch painter who cut off his own earlobe in 1888, died on
29 July in 1890, two days after shooting himself in the chest with a pistol.
The postimpressionist painter suffered from depression
and epileptoid seizures; to try to overcome the
depression, he left home and moved to Arles,
France
. He was joined there for a time by Paul
Gauguin
. Though he was a prolific artist x97 he completed nearly 900
paintings, over 1,000 drawings, and 150 watercolors, plus letter sketches and
graphic designs x97 Van Gogh succeeded in selling only one painting in his
lifetime. Since his death, his paintings have been sold for many millions of
dollars, including the Portrait of
Dr. Gachet
, which went for $82.5 million in
1990
.
