Hear No Evil
During a fit of dementia, Vincent Van Gogh mutilated the lower part of his left ear on this day in 1888. Finding very little appreciation for his work, Van Gogh led a life impoverished and battle with insanity. He spent time in mental institutions and finally shot himself at age 37 on July, 27 1890. He died two days later.
