On July 27, 1890, aged 37, Vincent van Gogh walked into a field and shot himself in the chest with a revolver.
He survived the impact and managed to walk back to the Ravoux Inn, where he died there two days later.
His brother, Theo, reported that his Vincent’s last words were “La tristesse durera toujours” (“the sadness will last forever”).
