Who was the subject of a painting titled “Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear”?

Answer:

VINCENT VAN GOGH

On this day in 1888, Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh, suffering from severe depression, cut off the lower part of his left ear with a razor while staying in Arles, France. He later documented the event in a painting titled Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear. This self-portrait was painted shortly after Van Gogh returned home from hospital. Today, Van Gogh is regarded as an artistic genius and his masterpieces sell for record-breaking prices; however, during his lifetime, he was a poster boy for tortured starving artists and sold only one painting.
