Vincent van Gogh shoots himself

Auto-curated

Van Gogh shot himself in the chest with a 7mm Lefaucheux à broche revolver. There were no witnesses and he died 30 hours after the incident. The bullet was deflected by a rib and passed through his chest without doing apparent damage to internal organs – probably stopped by his spine.
