The 60 Minutes piece on Van Gogh shows brilliant art work, tells the story of Van Gogh and lays out an alternative version of his death. Widely purported as a suicide, recent research indicates that his death was far from what we think it was.
More than anything, I enjoyed the pictures of the places in Auvers where Van Gogh lived and finally died, the room where he stayed, the inn where he took his meals, photographs of the people who lived around him, and the portraits of the people he painted.
