The town that inspired a genius

Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin quarreled and caroused, when not painting, during a famously tumultuous nine-week collaboration that an upcoming exhibition contends galvanized both men's artistic careers. For Van Gogh, the tortured painter of sunflowers and starry nights, Gauguin's imminent departure from their redoubt in southern France two days before Christmas, 1888, was a betrayal of his ideal of an artists' collective he believed would revolutionize the art world. In a protest heavy with symbolism, Van Gogh sliced off part of his left ear. The exhibition starts on September 22 at the Art Institute of Chicago and in February it will travel to Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum. Self-portrait Dedicated to Paul Gauguin, 1888, by Vincent van Gogh is pictured in this undated handout photo.
