- I though Van Gogh had died of syphilis but this was wrong, he committed suicide by shooting himself in the stomach and bleeding to death for 2 days.
- He had a mental illness
- He spent some time in a mental institute in France
- The most remarkable thing about Van Gogh I think is the sheer number of paintings he completed in such a short space of time, in fact all of his major works of art were completed in the last 10 years of his life.
Apologies for the lack of pictures there were not permitted inside the Van Gogh Museum but there were plenty of postcards to purchase at the shop.
Have you visited the Van Gogh Museum? Did you have a similar experience?
