Why Van Gogh committed suicide with a gun ?



Vincent van Gogh Self-portrait
· Vincent Van Gogh (Vincent van Gogh, 1853 - 1890), a Dutch national treasure. I've been to Amsterdam , " Van Gogh museum " twice , the first time backpacking and the second was a business trip to the Netherlands , the Dutch took me to visit, this is like a foreigner in Taiwan , we must bring the " Palace Museum " " now treasure ."

Van Gogh lived only a short period of 37 years, from 27 years old began writing ; decade , creating volume is very alarming , namely : eight hundred paintings, as well as eight hundred other paintings. Finally destitute, committed suicide with a pistol .

I asked the Dutch friends : " Van Gogh was poor, why have a gun suicide ? " Two man froze for a moment to discuss a few words, the result is shrugging giggle ......



[ Suicide ? ]

About Van Gogh 's suicide , doubts , a lot of controversy .

Not only firearms of unknown origin, and Van Gogh was shot in the stomach , unlike a gun suicides are aligned shot himself in the head or heart . If he wanted to commit suicide, why not leave a suicide note ? Killed without firing a shot , why did he not make up a shot ?

Van Gogh on July 29, 1890 morning, died from his shot himself 36 hours ; suicidal determination will usually die by suicide scene, Van Gogh shot after they trudged back to his room, until after found injury .



[ Moved Orville ]


Vincent 's brother Theo (Theo) lived in Paris , I hope to take care him. May 21, 1890 , Vincent Wang Si Aer general from the south of France (Arles, pictured above ) moved northwest of Paris Orville (Auvers-sur-Oise), lived in Fort Worth Inn (Auberge Ravoux), and accept Kerry Scotia Doctor (Doctor Gachet) healing . At this point, only two months until his death .

[ Witnesses ]

Aide Lin · Courtney Love (Adeline Ravoux, as shown below ) is Courtney Love innkeeper 's daughter, then 12 years old, has served several sheets of Van Gogh paintings models . Van Gogh was shot after she had recorded the case back to the hotel :

Van Gogh back to the inn , the bow was back , his hands encircling the stomach , his mother had asked him if he unharmed , Van Gogh painfully hesitantly said: " Nothing, but I have ...... " He went directly to the floor back room.

Our family feels right , father got up and went to the stairwell , listen for movement.

Van Gogh hotel proprietress later found bleeding quickly recruited Kerry Scotia doctors, rescue Ka homes look hopeless , to accompany Van Gogh until his death.


[Ka care physicians ]

Theo had hoped Kerry Scotia doctor to treat his brother , only to doctors but also melancholy than the patient , but restless. Kerry Scotia doctors are amateur painter , became friends with Vincent , Wen Jia homes for the survivors portrait painting looks depressed and tired Kerry homes , left according digitalis (digitalis, cardiac ) .


1990 , the first one , " Kerry Scotia doctor" by the Japanese " Daishowa Paper " Ryohei Saito boss to buy the high price of $ 82.5 million , becoming the most expensive one in the history of painting . " Daishowa Paper " bankrupt, this painting unaccounted


The second lot, " Kerry Scotia doctor" , now in the possession of Paris ' Musee d'Orsay "


[ Gun was borrowed from the innkeeper ? ]

There was a saying : Van Gogh as " driven nasty crow " grounds, to Courtney Love innkeeper by the gun .

From the time Aide Lin · Courtney Love sightings , the boss seems to know Van Gogh was shot up . And the boss should know Van Gogh have mental problems , it is impossible to lend him a gun.



[ Gun was bought ? ]

Another argument is : Van Gogh arms supplier to buy handguns. Orwell's people scoff at this argument .

An old woman's grandfather and Van Gogh are old acquaintances . She said: " Van Gogh borrowed five francs to his grandfather , a few days later , because not pay the money , he asked his grandfather choose to offset some paintings , grandfather to having also declined. " She believes that even small inn Van Gogh could not pay the rent is not possible to have money to buy a gun .

[ Gun is stolen ? ]

Van Gogh stolen pistol to say, long before it was published in the French magazine " god of medicine " (Aesculapius, Roman mythology, the god of medicine ) :

Father operate pharmacies in Paris two brothers , often on weekends to Orwell's house to play, they are on good terms , and Van Gogh , two brothers borrowed beat the rabbit in your carrying pistols , Van Gogh was stolen , but that pistol has failed .

However, Van Gogh used, can actually firing .



[ Gun fire ? ]

In fact , it could be Van Gogh to the two brothers by the gun ' drive away pesky crows , "because the pistol had failures, when Van Gogh manipulate fire , accidentally fired a shot toward the abdomen .

Two brothers saw kills , quickly distance themselves from responsibility lied stolen pistol was Vincent Van Gogh , also in magazines accountable plot.

[ Last years ]

Van Gogh lives in the last two years, extremely restless. February 1888 , Xi Zizi invite famous painter Vincent van Gogh Gauguin (Paul Gauguin) to Al living together . October , Gauguin lived after coming two differing philosophies , constantly bickering . In December, after a violent dispute , Gauguin furious away, Van Gogh cut off his left ear actually lower ( as right , this is the mirror self-portrait painted ) . Later, residents of collective petitions , Van Gogh was admitted mental sanatorium.

Theo is the only long-term mental and substance to the full support of Van Gogh loved ones, cutting off their ears before the event , Theo told him to get married next year , so he was very depressed. Coupled with Gauguin 's departure , Van Gogh finally furious .

In 1890, Theo poor due to economic circumstances , the decision to move back to the Netherlands mother's house ; case, loneliness again attacked Van Gogh . Just more than two years , the relocation of residence , situational changes, coupled with bipolar disorder sicker, Van Gogh finally bear , even without shooting , Van Gogh will be more crazy .
