Well, there goes another "coping with madness results in great art" story:
History has always painted Vincent Van Gogh as the artist who cut off his ear. But according to researchers, history might have got the wrong man.
They believe that, in fact, it was Paul Gauguin, an artist of almost equal renown, who cut off his friend's ear.
And the injury wasn't inflicted for the sake of art - rather it was part of a feud over a prostitute.
"Starry Night" is one of the most overrated works of art in history, and it also spawned the incredibly sappy song by Don McClean, who really should have retired with a "job well done" after "American Pie." But Van Gogh suffered, you know; must have been a genius.
