I knew I could count on my art net buddies. Many of you have responded
to my question about Van Gogh's ear. There are a variety of stories.
The one Joan of Art sent was the one I am most familiar with ( did it
for another woman,except Joan, I read she was a prostituite not a piano
player). But check out ABCNEWS.com ,they have a nice article about the
new Van Gogh exhibt and they mention the ear thing at the beginning of
the article! The poor guy just can't get away from that event even with
the fantastic artwork he did. That story always will follow him. Hmmm,
that sounds like someone else in the news lately who will have a
particular event shadow him for the rest of his life too.
