Tragic Vincent van Gogh Died This Day 127-Years Ago; July 29, 1890, In France.
Some of his lesser known works:
He was only 37 years old, having turned 37 only in March of that year.
He had shot himself in the chest two days earlier. IF there had been a surgeon around he could have been saved.
It was indeed a tragic end to what had been a tragic life despite his artistic brilliance. A day to reflect. Died never knowing that he would be a beloved celebrity long after his death — though he never enjoyed success during his short life.
