vincent van gogh

i just posted this crayon drawing of vincent van gogh to my etsy shop.

an interesting bit of art news, this is believed to be a photograph of van gogh:

this photo was found in an antique dealers shop in massachusetts, bought for $1, and taken for forensic image comparisons. it eventually was evaluated at the h.c.lee institute of forensic science, university of new haven, and the conclusion was "in all probability, this is a rare photo of vincent van gogh as an adult."

in other van gogh news, some art historians now claim that gauguin may have actually been behind the loss of Vincent's ear.
