Van Gogh

Interesting story on the contest description. But Patricia Cornwell, popular mystery/detecting story writer, wrote a book "solving" the Jack the Ripper murders. She pointed out that Van Gogh sliced off his ear in the Winter following the JTR murders - and VG mailed his sliced off ear to a prostitute, Rachel, whom he was fond of, who serviced him often. She posited that VG felt sympathy for prostitutes, or "working women" as they were also called, who were JTR's victims in White Chapel, London. He sliced off his ear in tribute to all WW, and particularly to those 5 (or more) who were victims of JTR, who famously took parts of the women he slashed.

I think this is more probable than the one on the front page, but to each her own.

What theory do YOU favor, as to why Van Gogh sliced off his ear?

I believe Dr. Rita Wildegan's account that colleague and housemate Paul Gauguin, an expert fencer with a bad temper, cut off van Gogh's ear during an argument. In her book Van Gogh's Ear / The Pact Of Silence she lays out the facts of the matter. Here is the  Principal Findings of her years long study.

It's a valiant story Icy so it's not likely to be true. I'm siding on the Gauguin making salami out of Gogh's ear.
