bailey sent me this article about van gogh

from bbc news...
Vincent van Gogh did not cut off his own ear but lost it in a fight with fellow artist Paul Gauguin in a row outside a brothel, it has been claimed.

here's one of my favorite van gogh paintings... Wheat Field With Crows... widely thought to be his last painting... but if i remember correctly... he actually painted it about two weeks before killing himself... and did some more paintings after this one
