Van Gogh’s Ear

Interesting news about Van Gogh — he didn’t cut off his own ear? It seems most great artists have interesting biographies, Van Gogh is certainly one of them. The alternative account of Van Gogh’s mutilation makes the artist more respectable, albeit at the expense of the mad-man appeal his legacy now enjoys. The fact he presented the severed ear to a prostitute named Rachel is not disputed (i.e. he’s still a mad-man).
