I was glad to read the post on Van Gogh and Meniere's disease. I had read that
as well- and also that Van Gogh had a habit of putting his oiled brushes into
his mouth to get the point just right. This creates speculation that he was
slowly lead-poisoning himself and perhaps creating or adding to his own
depression/madness or at least worsening the tinnitus in his ear.....
interesting, I think to consider the role his work played in his madness.
