Great art has an intrinsic value that has nothing to do with money placements. There's nothing intrinsic with a can of soup, except for the fools that pay big bucks for a painting of one.
He WAS a lunatic, Raul! That's so obvious in his art. You can trace it from painting to painting, the progression of his mental illness. Personally, I can't stand looking at his disturbed mind disintegrating. It's too painful.
That Van gogh was a lunatic should be teached at kindergarten. Of course he was. Who doesn't know that, can just as well go commit him self as well.
