The Van Gogh Museum which describes the exhibition as a main point for answers on the questions related to Van Gogh's illness especially how he himself coped with it, how others responded, how his mental state influenced his work and what he wrote about it in his letters accentuates also that' the severed ear and the circumstances of his suicide have been a constantly recurring subject of debate in the 126 years since his death and have significantly shaped the Van Gogh myth...'
'...Yesterday, I was on a stony heath..  ' Vincent Van Gogh wrote,
Worshipper at nature and the countryside. 
'Van Gogh’s battle with his illness',as the experts noted and..
'the ‘ear incident’ through which Van Gogh’s illness manifested itself in December 1888, while he was living in the southern French town of Arles, is reconstructed through eyewitness testimonies and letters. The paintings he completed immediately after returning from the hospital, such as the Portrait of Dr Rey (Pushkin Museum, Moscow) and the Still Life with a Plate of Onions (Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo), show how he tried to pick up the threads of his life..'
