yeah dude, he was dirt poor, most of his paintings are even fully painted cause he had no money to buy paint.
and also, a lot of famous paintings are small as shit irl

>>2492590
It's a myth, he had a tough fight with domeone and that someone bit his ear off

i think this was a time when people still carried swords. van gogh was a regular at some pub that got rowdy. whatever led up to it, he got in a fight and lost his ear.
>>
>>2496893
This. He was fucked up oun absinthe and confronted his roommate at the time he wasissed at. Both of them were black out drunk and didn't remember what happened, the only reason we know what happened was because he took the part of his ear that got cut off to a prostitute he had been casually seeing for safekeeping, while still fucked up, of course.
>>
>>2493600
That's because he used optical assistance that was super time consuming. So he did small paintings to save time
>>
>>2492590
From what I heard, he was an absinthe drinker, and when his best friend was going to leave him - he cut off his ear and gave it to him as a way of saying "don't go"

Mona Lisa is unexpectedly tiny too I know that.
I think some Monets are surprisingly tiny too.
