Was Vincent van Gogh mad?
He did stay in a madhouse for a while.
In walking through our local art museum, I came across this van Gogh painting.
While I was admiring his brushstrokes, I started hearing the Madness song by Muse play in my head. Was this clairaudience?
I know it is a popular song on the radio right now, but I thought it was interesting that I heard it while looking at his painting. His brush strokes are pretty fast and thick with paint. He was known to strive to paint one painting a day. I do not think that makes him mad, but purportedly getting into a fight over a women and losing an ear … well?
Was he mad? I cannot say for sure.
(Love this song though.)
I have been told that the best Dr. Who episode involves transporting van Gogh into the future to show him that his paintings are famous. The look on his face was priceless.
