About that new Van Gogh bio

(Judith H. Dobrzynski, RealClearArts) Today, a new biography of Vincent van Gogh lands in bookstores (officially), and it is bound to cause discussion and debate — not to mention bring more attention to this beloved painter.

Van Gogh: A Life, written by Stephen Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, takes apart the story that van Gogh committed suicide, and instead pins his death on a couple of boys van Gogh befriended, sort of, in his loneliness –even though they relentlessly mocked him. It wasn’t intentional — just accidental.
