    I love how caring and supportive his brother was and to think that in the end Vincent finally paid back his brother by all of his paintings just shows how real their bond was . But it sucks to think that Vincent died believing he was a burden when in reality he paid his brother a million times over

    I actually did a school project over this, and it still breaks my heart. But one of the theories I believe is that Van Gogh's doctor's son did it.

    If you would like to see Vincent's story told in a gorgeous art style I suggest the film Loving Vincent on Netflix, it is truly moving.

    I wonder if he asked someone to do it for him and once they did they couldn't live with themselves so tried to get rid of all the evidence. It could have been someone like his brother seeing how miserable someone you love is could drive you to help them with something so awful.

  • 星月夜

    Idk, am I the only person who's a bit iffy about people wanting to turn suicide stories into homicide? It is certainly possible and sometimes a homicide might be arranged to look like a suicide. But I get the feeling that homicide is more digestible for people than wrapping your head around why someone could want to hurt themself and take their own life, so they're eager to believe that something was murder rather than a suicide.
    The human mind can be a dark, self-destructive place and we need to acknowledge that so we can learn how to better help people who feel suicidal or suffer from other mental health problems.

    Weren't a couple of young boys playing with a gun in the wheat field and accidentally shot him? Van Gogh brought his supplies out to paint and the two kids shot him, and when he fell down they ran away. That's why he "couldn't find" the gun, the boys took it with them. And he didn't want them to get in trouble so he told everyone he did it?
    (edit) okay im not crazy it was a theory

    Life for him was unfair, but Death was sweeter than the cruel jokes living pulled on him, hopefully, if there is an afterlife, he sees how much of an impact he made and was to every single artist out there, how loved he is..

    Honestly though. Incedentally it would make complete and total sense with the van gogh episode of doctor who. Because the doctor is so surprised to find he still killed himself. But maybe its because he was murdered so even if he stopped him from hurting himself, he couldn't stop his murder because he didn't know about it. And he was also a very hated man in that episode. So who knows,,,
