A painting from the last days of Vincent’s life
This is the day, in 1890, that Vincent Van Gogh died. His cause of death is often stated as a suicide, but the evidence is/was far from conclusive.
According to Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, the authors of
Van Gogh: The Life
Vincent very well have been murdered. Naifeh and Smith make a very compelling case and their book is meticulously, thoroughly and lovingly researched. A long read but never a slog.
