Vincent Van Gogh (1890) mortally wounded

On July 27, 1890, the painter Vincent Van Gogh was wounded by a bullet in the small town of Auvers-sur-Oise in France. That injury led to his death two days later, at the age of just 37. For a long time, it was thought that Van Gogh shot himself, ie that it was a suicidal act, but recent historical analyzes are different. Namely, it was never explained which Van Gogh weapon he used to shoot himself and how he came across this unknown weapon.

Vincent was wounded that day and returned to an inn named Auberge Ravoux, where he rented a room. Even two doctors examined his wound, but concluded that they could not help him. Vincent’s brother Theo came to him practically as soon as he received the telegram. They spent the last hours of Vincent’s life together, until he passed away in the early morning hours of July 29, 1890.
