Van Gogh admitted himself into a mental asylum, after cutting off his ear lobe to send to his ex wife. Van Gogh had problems with depression, bipolar issues, and seizures. He also had lead poisoning, because he would drink yellow paint, believing it was a happy color.
Van Gogh was unadmitted from the hospital after about a year, and moved in with a friend. After living there for a few months, he went out on the back porch, and shot himself. He died two days later, on July 29th, 1880.
Vincent Van Gogh was a man with a difficult journey. Through art, he found a way to relax and find himself through his art. His art now hangs in museums all around the world.
Normality is a paved road, its comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it. -Vincent Van Gogh
