Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear

Vincent van Gogh created this painting after a famous conflict with his friend Paul Gauguin, during one of their arguments he injured himself and cut his left ear with a knife, and then he offered a pierced ear to a prostitute as a gift. In this self-portrait, Gogh is with a blue cap and green overcoat, with a bandage covering his ear. Vincent used a mirror while drawing self-portraits, that's why some people mistakenly think that he had lost piece of his right ear instead of left.
