Did Van Gogh Lie about his Ear?

05/05/2009

The BBC reports that the famous impressionist and Gauguin, got into a brawl, and the Tahiti inspired painter cut off Van Gogh’s ear with a sword.

Van Gogh was such a good pal. He agreed to tell everyone he was crazy and cut off his own ear in order to save Gauguin’s reputation/soul/whatever. Man, friends just don’t make the grade these days. How many of your friends would tell that lie for you?!
