Van Gogh's Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear
Waldemar Januszczak studies Van Gogh's Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear and discovers within the painting a startling secret.
Painted soon after he cut off his ear with a razor, Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear is one of his most celebrated works. But how much do we really know about it?
In a far-ranging investigation, Waldemar Januszczak delves into the clues hidden in the painting. The result is a tale of geishas, brothels, bullfights, love affairs, suffering and a fiery relationship with Gauguin. Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear has a powerful secret message, if you know what to look for.
