Van Gogh Not Suicide

Master famous paintings from the Netherlands, Van Gogh died in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, in 1890 at the age of just 37. According to the conclusions of the author of two biographies of Vincent Van Gogh, that Vincent Van Gogh did not die from suicide but was killed accidentally.

Vincent Van Gogh did not suicide but was killed accidentally. Thus the conclusion of the author of two books about the life history of newly issued. Van Gogh’s biography entitled The Life, written by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, who conducted research for 10 years and worked with more than 20 translators and researchers.

According to their conclusions, the real Van Gogh was accidentally shot by two children whom he knew as a boy owner “of firearms is damaged”. Master famous paintings, from the Netherlands, died in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, in 1890 at the age of just 37.

With the help of researchers and translators, both authors combed thousands of letters of the maestro who has never been translated as study materials and documents to build a database containing 28,000 records. Van Gogh stayed at the Auberge Ravoux inn during its productive period, which he then walked into the wheat fields near the place to paint.

During this time people thought that was shot in the farm suicide conducted, shortly before he returned to the inn and died. But the authors Steven Naifeh said, “we made clear that he was not going on a field of wheat was to commit suicide”.

“Understanding a number of people in Auvers among those who knew him is that he was killed in an accident involving two boys and he chose to protect them by claiming to shoot himself.”

This conclusion, according to the authors is also supported by the results of the study of art historian John Rewald that record the current version of events came to Auvers in the 1930s. Some details of events are also considered to support that theory. Included among them, the explanation that the bullet penetrated the abdomen turns on Van Gogh from a strange angle, not straight like a shot from the direction of its own.

Two boys, one of whom was wearing a cowboy shirt and was wearing a gun broke playing shooting, known to have a drink at that time with Vincent. So there are two teenagers with a gun do not work, there is one kid who likes to play cowboy, then there are three people who probably all three drank too much.

While the author Gregory White Smith, judge Van Gogh did not “intentionally seek death but when death comes, or when the possibility of death came, he grabbed her.” The attitude of Van Gogh received death that he “really constituted as a proof of love for her sister, because she felt a burden”. Van Gogh’s brother, Theo, sugar daddy to live the maestro who was, “not sell”.

This biography was published Monday (17/10), and according to the author is expected to give better understanding of the “figure of the fragile and weak” and therefore his artwork would look “more clearly as an achievement”.

    I just heard about it. Allegedly the name of the boy who is taught to have shot the artist was 16-year old Renee Secretan. According to other sources Van Gogh accidentally shot himself and passed away two days later from his wounds.

    This is a great information.
    No matter whether Van Gogh committed suicide or was shot by accident, as fresh evidence shows, he was undoubtedly one of the greatest painters of all time. Despite the fact that he lived a short life, he managed to leave behind him superb works of arts, characterized by his unique style. Had he died at an older age, the volume of his workd would have probably been huge.
